Lotus Notes users get "Authentication Required" when viewing an alert email with a graphic

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 09, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
(This is a SharePoint 2007 question, but I only see SharePoint 2010 in the Forum options...kind of odd since SharePoint 2010 has not been released.)If our users open email alerts in Lotus Notes, and the email has an image, they are presented with a prompt for credentials that says:"Authentication RequiredEnter your username for Unkown at sharepoint.ourcompany.comUsername________________________Password________________________[ ] Save these in an Account in my address book[OK][Cancel]"Emails without graphics do not prompt for credentials.Does anybody know why this happens, or how we can fix it?

Add Issue ID to an email alert?


Dear all,

(running WSS 3.0)

I'm desperately trying to add the Issue ID to the alert email that is sent when a list item is assigned to you. I have looked around and followed many tutorials online, however none of my changes have had any effect. So far I have done:

  1. Copied alerttemplates.xml to customalerttemplates.xml
  2. Edited customalerttemplates.xml
  3. Removed "ID" from <ImmediateNotificationExcludedFields>
  4. Ran stsadm -o updatealerttemplates -url http://server -filename "C:\Program files\common files\Microsoft shared\web server extensions\12\template\XML\customalerttemplates.xml"
  5. Ran iisrest
  6. Restarted Sharepoint Timer service

However even after doing that the email sent when an item is assigned is just the basic default! I've just tried to add the ID to the most simple section of the email (footer) however nothing seems to change the email alert.

I've followed guides such as:


send email to all users with certain rights

Hello,  I'm using Sharepoint Designer and Foundation 2010. I am a new admin and appreciate all the help I can get.  Here's what I'm trying to do.   I have several business workflows that call for notifying the users of a particular site. Rather than set the workflow to email specific users or even a group of users, I'd like to set the workflow to email anyone within a certain rights level. For example, I want to notify all users with Contribute level rights whenever a new document is loaded or modified.    Is there a quick way to do this?Beth Singley PBM Graphics

Immediate alert email body is truncated intermittently in MOSS 2007

Hi All, I  am facing one issue with Alert. We have one Posts list in one of the Blog where Alert Me generates immediate alert for the users who have subscribed to the Blogs. Whenever any new Post added, edited or deleted they used to get alerts. But in the alert email, the body of the alert which normally contains the Post decsription gets truncated intermittently. Sometimes it is truncated with less than 2048 characters in the Body filed and some times with more than 4098 characters. I found in some articles that the limitation is 2048 characters in one line after whcih the new line is expected , else the text will be truncated. I am not able to find the logic behind this truncation in default sharepoint alert functionality. Could you please give some more insights on this front? Thnaks:)  

Cannot create email alerts for multiple users

Hello, I created an email alert for a document in a library. In the "Send Alerts To" box, I added multiple user names separated by semicolons and saved the alert. However, when I open the alert again, only my user name appears and the additional user names are gone. Why is this happening and how do I fix this problem?  Thank you in advance.

Custom Email Alert template creating links to DispForm.aspx

I have a requirement to customise the alert template for a standard blog post list. To do this I: 1. Created a copy of alertstemplate.xml 2. Copied the genericList alert template node and customised 3. Registered the new template file against the site collection, iisreset and finally assigned the new Alert template to the list, when alerts are created the custom template is emailed. The problem now arises that the 'View <Post Title>' in the toolbar section now creates a hyperlink to http..../Lists/Posts/Dispform.aspx?ID=xx rather than post.aspx. I have checked using sharepoint designer that the list supporting files has the correct display item form of Lists/Posts/Post.aspx. Additionally if I reset the alert template for the list back to use the Generic list template the same problem still occurs so this leads me to believe it is not the customisations that are the problem. Code used to assign the alert template to the Posts list: var ats = new SPAlertTemplateCollection((SPWebService) site.WebApplication.Parent); var newTemplate = ats[alertName]; if (newTemplate == null) { // We did not find the specified Template. throw new Exception("Failed to find template SPAlertTemplateType.NewsPost in the template collection."); } list.AlertTemplate = newTemplate; list.Update(); Any assistance will be most welcome, thanks in advance.

Quest lotus notes to sharepoint 2010 migration

Hi, I am using Quest tool for migrating from notes to SharePoint 2010. However, i cannot find any method using which I could validate the integrity of the migrated data which could be a problem when a large number of databases are in the picture. Also, is it possible to migrate the various views in a notes database to sharepoint, instead of selecting just a single view (using Quest) ? Waiting for replies!!

Lotus notes search results!!!


The search results from the lotus notes DB are not showing the published date.

I edited the 'Created' property and added below properties:-

I have created crawl rules for the same. But, still getting same warnings.
