Hello, I have set up MOSS 2007, but do not have smtp service and pop3 service installed. Now I want to configurate the incoming and outgoing email of sharepoint, if I install the SMTP and Pop3 service now, will it change or affect the current sharepoint sites(I'm worried this may make the sites collapse)? After the SMTP and Pop3 service intallation compelet, do I need to run the configuration wizard before configurating the incoming and outgoing email in centra admin? Appreciate any handful info.  Thanks

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:)

Question On MOSS 2007 Configuration Wizard


Can anyone tell me what the pro's and cons are when configuring MOSS 2007 or 2010 using the Wizard versus Psconfig command-line. Is one way better then the other?

I would think that the command line would be more time consuming and prone to human errors.

Custom Email Alerts using Helpdesk Template in MOSS 2007

Hi All,

I recently installed the Helpdesk template on our SharePoint 2007 Server but I want to find out how to set up alerts so that when a job request has been assigned to person X an email will automatically be sent to that person. Currently you can custimise the Service Request list so that whenever changes are made to it an email can be sent to a designated person, however, what we require is an email being sent to the service request owner.

I presume this will require custom coding but is there third party plug-ins which provide this functionality? As i have never programmed for MOSS i was wondering how much of a task is it to provide this functionality?

Any help would be greatly appreciated,


Migrating MOSS 2007 installation from one database server to another - configuration database issue


The database server which our sharepoint installation is currently using is going to be shutdown and a new one is going to be put in production.

I read in some post that the configuration database cannot be moved (while the same operation type is documented for content database). Is this correct?

Isn't there a way by which I can modify my current moss installation to define the use of another sql server for configuration (and then later for content) databases?

Any other workaround or procedure?

Thank you!


MOSS 2007 email integration question (Not with Exchange)


Does anyone have any experience with integrating MOSS 2007 with the business/government edition of Gmail?  Is there any documentation/blogs/anything out there?  I've googled but not been able to find anything (yes, it's highly possible I'm just not using the right search string) really.

MOSS 2007
Server 2003 R2 Enterprise
SQL 2005 SP3 (separate)

Currently we have exchange set up to handle everything but will be going to Gmail in the next few months (not my choice, not my decision).  I have no idea how/if this is going to work with SharePoint.

Any information or pointers to info would be much appreciated.

MOSS 2007 - Add "Email Page to Friend" feature to Actions menu or to site master page.


My Communications Director would like us to add an "Email this Page to a Friend" type of feature to our SharePoint 2007 Intranet.  They would ideally like to have this feature available on every page.  But I was thinking that even if we could add this item to the List Actions menu it would suffice.  Does anyone know of a webpart that will do this or can offer some custom code and instructions on how to make this happen?

Can you embed an Infopath 2007 form with MOSS 2007 in an Outlook 2010 email?



MOSS 2007, Infopath 2007 and Outlook 2010

Is it possible to embed the Infopath Form in the email itself.

I read this link (point 1) http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/infopath/microsoft-office-infopath-2007-top-10-benefits-HA010165024.aspx, but I have been unable to do this?

Do you have to have Infopath 2007 on the client machine to be able to do this?
