spd2007 - basic form and email


I'm using spd2007 and have created a very basic form to collect data. I've also set it up to send off an email. When I go to the moss2007 site and use the form it appears to be working fine. However, I never receive an email from the workflow. I checked my logs and don't see anything logged about the email not working.

Any suggestions?

Password recovery by entering email not username



I am using the ASP.Net password recovery control.  By default the user needs to enter their username before an email gets sent out to them.

If it possible instead of entering the username, email is used instead?  Alot of my users forgets their username but not email.


Best regex for email body on contact form?

I'm not sure the best way to do a regex for the body section of an email contact form.  I want to use the regex to prevent more than 150 characters from being entered.  I assume this is sufficient, I may need more.  I also want it to help guard against sql injection attacks. The more I think about it the more characters I can think of that should be allowed.  I want to allow punctuation since it's for an email and people should be using full sentences.  These are some other things that make sense to allow: " , ', : , ; , $ , . , ! , ? , - , _ , @ , & , ( , ). They cover situations when someone may put an email address or phone number in the body section for the email.  I also want to allow letters and numbers.    I'm not sure if it's best to allow the characters I mentioned or not allow characters that pose a potential threat.  I think allowing the ones I want is the best way, but I'm not sure.  Can someone please give an example and/or suggestions?  Are there other characters that should be allowed?  I don't have much yet: "^(?i)[a-z0-9\s]{1,150}$"

Bad email address exception handling

 I have a form that used to send an email to someone who had posted  a listing on my site, with a copy to the sending user. The code below is intended to catch the exception that occurs when email address of the person posting the listing (TxtBxTo.Text) is not valid, and also intended to catch the (unlikely) event that the user has entered and confirmed an invalid email (TxtBxEmail.Text) for himself on the form. I have tested this code for all combinations of valid and invalid email addresses for the listing poster and the user filling out the form and sending the email Everything works fine except for the situation where the email address for the listing poster is valid but that of the user  is invalid. In this situation I am getting the message on the ConfirmResaleEmail.aspx page that says: "Your message has been sent to the contact person, with a copy to you. " when I should be getting "Woops, it looks like your own email failed when we tried to send you your copy. " I am hoping some sharp-eyed person can spot the problem.  Here is the code:         ' this sends email from a user with email TxtBxEmail to the contact perons listed in TxtBxTo        msg = New MailMessage(TxtBxEmail.Text, TxtBxTo.Text, TxtBxSubject.Text, sb.ToString())    &n

Send email to address in a list

infopath form.  end users submits.  Manager gets and assigns to someone on team.  (no Task list involved) In the form there is a drop down pulled from a list of team member names (2 fields: Name and Email) Trying to create a workflow that will email the "assigned to" person.  I think its a workflow look up, but i am not connecting the final dots.  Can anyone direct me to a resource for: If assigned to is equal to "name on a list" use the email associated to the name in the same list thank you in advance..

Is it possible to display the friendly name or email address of LiveID User Using Claims Authenticat

We have finally gotten LiveID authentication to work.  However when we specify a user to add to a sharepoint group, we need to do it via the unique id that live uses.   The user does login using their usual email address and password, but on the sharepoint side they see the PUID@live.com as the logged in user, and when we want to specify the user to have access to the a particular site or library, we have to do it by the same PUID@live.com.  This display makes it difficult to manager users on the sharepoint side.   Is there something I missed on setting up of the authentication provider, or is there something I can do to get sharepoint to retrieve the other information so that we can view the user through the email or full name that live provides?   Steve Paplanus

Using UserName to enable disable access to InfoPath form fields

Hi Everyone, I have created a browser enable form in InfoPath and restrict certain fields depending on the official logged on User Name. Now this works most of the time but my problem has to do with the "case" of User Names for some of the site users. In most cases the User Name is an exact match but for some reason, some user's names are reported by SharePoint (the Welcome at top of screen) with some parts captilized. Example - my hidden filed on the form reports my user name as xrs_master but the Welcome up top says XRS_Master - and the fields act as though I am not the correct user and won't enable. On the other hand there are users who's user name matches the case exactly and all works fine. Why is SharePoint reporting the user name differently? And if this is the reason they don't match, how do I fix it? Any Ideas? Many thanks in advance for help!

SP 2010 Form Based Authentication username begins with "i:0#.w|"

Hello there! For the life of me, i can't figure out why SharePoint keeps putting the phrase "i:0#.w|" infront of everyones username / accounts. Both on mysite and portal sites.

Problems submitting anonymous form via email.

I followd the steps here to configure an InfoPath form to be submitted anonymously. After much trial and error (I'm not a developer, and this was the first time I ever used Visua Studio), I got it working. I now want a second libary that uses pretty much the exact same form, but submits the completed form via email rather than into the document library. I made a copy of my first form template and then changed the submit connection to email. Unfortunately, when I publish this form and try to submit it, I get a error message that "there has been an error processing the form." Any ideas on what might be going on? Here is the working version that submits to the library. Here is the NOT working version.

Email address regular expression

I used the function below to validate email addresses. // Function to test for valid email address.         public static bool IsValidEmailAddress(String emailAddress)         {             Regex regex = new Regex(@"^[_a-zA-Z0-9-]+(\.[_a-zA-Z0-9-]+)*@[a-zA-Z0-9-]+(\.[a-zA-Z0-9-]+)*\.(([0-9]{1,3})|([a-zA-Z]{2,3})|(aero|coop|info|museum|name))$");             Match match = regex.Match(emailAddress);             return match.Success;         } This regular expression works for amy.charles@test.com, but not robert.o'neil@test.com. Can anyone help me to modify the regulation expression, making it to valid for robert.o'neil@test.com Thanks in advance!

Require Unique eMail Address in CreateUserWizard?

I want my users' email addresses to be unique.  I have looked around and found various examples of code to add to the web.config file that all look similar to the following: <membership defaultProvider="CustomizedMembershipProvider"> <providers> <add name="CustomizedMembershipProvider" type="System.Web.Security.SqlMembershipProvider" connectionStringName="xmxmxmxmm" requiresUniqueEmail="true" maxInvalidPasswordAttempts="5" passwordAttemptWindow="10" minRequiredPasswordLength="8" minRequiredNonalphanumericCharacters="1"/> </providers> </membership> However...whenever I add this to the web.config file and run the page with the CreateUserWizard I get the following error: Parser Error Message: Unrecognized configuration section membership. I am building a website based on .Net 3.5 using Visual Studio 2008. Does anybody know how I can add the <membership> section to the web.config so that these CreateUserWizard parameters can be added...or...is there another way of going about this altogether? Many thanks in advance...MDCragg
