WSS 3.0 Alerts Not Working For All Sites

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 10, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
I have a fresh WSS3.0 installation in Windows Server 2008.  Alerts aren't working the way they're supposed to.  When I go to create an alert, I get an an e-mail alert that the alert has been created.  However, when I make updates to the task or add announcements, I don't get any alerts at all. Immediate alerts are obviously working, however they don't work after the alert is created. Where should I look?

Email alerts no longer working- please help.

Hello- I recently had a problem applying an SSL certificate to my MOSS 2007 site where I had to rebuild a lot things in order to get the site back up and running.  Now that it is, I can no longer get email alerts to the users.  The odd thing is that when I set up a calendar event, only me (the site administrator) receives an automated message from 'Administrator@xyz.com'???  This tells me that the smtp settings are correct.  I have found severl posts about this but they are all from developers who think that everyone knows how to program and so their answers are not step by step for me to at least try them out?  Can someone point me in the right direction? Thanks!

Not able to display Memberships as well as "SharePoint Documents" in My Site/My Profile even if user is in default Members group of some site in a web application.  Explicitly ran the User Profile to SP Sync jobs multiple times - job says "succeeded" but nothing happens.

Appreciate any advice in this regard.

Alerts not working for Lists on FBA / Anonymous access site


Hi Folks,

I have a WSS3.0 site that allows anonymous access as well as using FBA. Another web application is configured to use the same content database but set with windows authentication.

Anonymous users are allowed to post to a few Lists. I am trying to create an alert for an authenticated user (either FBA or Windows). I receive the "You have successfully created an alert" email, but no emails are sent when new items are added. This is the case for all new list items whether they are added by an authenitcated user or an anonymous one.

I am sure the site config is set correctly (but I will double-check). Is there any reason for the behaviour I am experiencing? I'm not at the latest patch level (we are using the June 2009 CU), so perhaps this was an issue that has been resolved in a later patch/update that I ought to apply?

Would appreciate any gems of information anyone might have on the subject before I go away and write my own event handler to send an email!!!


HttpContext.Current.Response.Redirect Not Working for Local Intranet Zone Sites


Hi All,

I have made this a seperate question as the original topic of another user who had a similiar issue was marked answered, however his answer is not mine.

In my infopath form, after the submit event, I am using HttpContext.Current.Response.Redirect(URL, false) to change the page.

I use an XPathNavigator to get the value for URL from a simple text box.

If i type in that text box http://www.google.com or http://www.hotmail.com, for instance, the page redirects perfectly.

However, if I type in a site address like http://intranet.mundaring.wa.gov.au or http://localhost for instance (which I need to), the form simply throws a critical error with no more detail than that.

The only pattern I can see is that the sites that DO work are in the Internet Zone, and all the sites that DO NOT work are all listed as Local Intranet sites.

I cannot change my local intranet sites as they are enforced by policy.

Please could somebody assist me with why this may be doing this. The form is opened from the intranet (a local site) so no zone change is taking place.




Sharepoint alerts not working on Production


Hi all,

When i am intitating an alert, a mail is sent to the user that alert has been created to this list/library. But when i change anything in the item then no mail is sent to user who is configured to that alert.

Note: I have configured alert for all the changes and immediate alerts.

I have checked the timer job in central admin, they also are present in the timer job definitions.

Do i need to do anything else to get the alert message. Please advice....

Working with SharePoint document libraries

Document libraries are collections of files that you can share with team members on a Web based on Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services. For example, you can create a library of common documents for a project, and team members can use their Web browsers to find the files, read them, and make comments. Users with Microsoft Office 2003 can check out and edit the files as if they resided on a local or network drive.

By default, your team Web site comes with a built-in document library named Shared Documents, which is listed on the Quick Launch bar as well as on the Documents and Lists page.

SharePoint Tutorial - Team Sites

Team sites are small web sites that are created to store everything about a particular thing. For example a site can be created for a department in an organization like human resources. I site can be created for a particular project. A site can even be created for a meeting. Everything about the thing (department, project, meeting) like documents, lists, calendars, etc. is stored in that site.

Creating Sites/Lists/List Items under Current User Context in SharePoint By Using SPUserToken

Usually we do this by performing the action under RunWithElevatedPrivileges method and updating the listitem using SPListItem.SystemUpdate() method (see here). but this approach has its own flaws like (RunWithElevatedPrivileges will run under system account, we cannot use SystemUpdate for SPSite,SPWeb,SPList, since it runs under system we will "CreatedBy" by as SystemAccount).

Server side validation of Fileupload control not working



I've tried this method in my code behind to try and validate that the Fileupload control has a file or not. I get the error message the the event "Server Validate" cannot be found. Can anyone tell why? Thanks.

Public Sub CustomValidator1_ServerValidate(ByVal source As Object, ByVal args As System.Web.UI.WebControls.ServerValidateEventArgs) Handles CustomValidator1.ServerValidate

' Get file name

        Dim uploadAvatar As FileUpload = DirectCast(AdvertisementForm.FindControl("uploadAvatar"), FileUpload)

        Dim UploadFileName As String = uploadAvatar.PostedFile.FileName

        If UploadFileName = "" Then
            ' There is no file selected
            args.IsValid = False
            Dim Extension As String = UploadFileName.Substring(UploadFileName.L

Row command working on all rows not selected one?



I have this code that hides a column in a gridview.  (The column houses another nested gridview).

    Protected Sub GridView1_RowCommand(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Web.UI.WebControls.GridViewCommandEventArgs) Handles GridView1.RowCommand
        If e.CommandName = "Select" Then
            If GridView1.Columns(0).Visible = False Then
                GridView1.Columns(0).Visible = True
                GridView1.Columns(0).Visible = False
            End If
        End If
    End Sub

The trouble is that if I click the select link on one row that action to hide is carried out on all rows.  How can I set this up so that it only hides the row that is selected?
