SharePoint 2010 email enabled list with workflow has incorrect User ID when items are emailed to the

I have set up an approval workflow for a document library that has email enabled. Emails come into the document library fine, however, if an item is emailed to the library the workflow kicks off with the initiator as "System Account" rather than the person who submitted the email. This makes the error of "The e-mail message cannot be sent. Make sure the e-mail has a valid recipient." come up. If someone submits a document directly to the library (by logging into sharepoint and submitting) everything works fine. The person submitting by email is a valid sharepoint user and the profile shows the correct email address. The Created by and Modified by fields show the correct person (rather than System Account), it's only the workflow User ID that shows incorrectly if document is emailed to library. Any help or ideas would be appreciated. Thanks

How to send a link to list item by email in SharePoint 2010?


With SharePoint 2007 list item display form is openned in broswer and user can either copy and paste the url and send the link by email or use the browser's "Page" button and click "Send the link by email" to send the link.

With SharePoint 2010 list item display form is openned in a dialog box, the browser doesn't show the list item url and the browser's "Page" button's "Send the link by email" just sends a link to the list not the list item.

We don't want to diable the dialog box either. Please help.

Sharepoint 2010 Workflow Email Issue


So I wanted to create a workflow for a list I have already created in Sharepoint.  The list is an "Issue Tracking" list.  When I add an item to the list, and then modify that item, I am notified by email that changes have been made to this item.  But when my workflow includes the "Send an Email" action in Sharepoint Designer, the workflow results include the message: The e-mail message cannot be sent. Make sure the outgoing e-mail settings for the server are configured correctly. 


I first thought it was the workflow and how it was looking up the email address to send to from variables in the workflow.  But then I changed it all the way down to simply being the single step: "Send an Email" and the email address is hard coded in the properties with my email address.  Since I get the notifications that changes have been made to the items in the list, I wanted to beleive that it was something else.  But I checked into the log file that was suggested on another thread here, and found an error when I searched the log for "SMTP:"


#160002: Cannot connect to SMTP host 'mail.xxxxxxxxx.com'.    a84dc162-7c30-43a1-b58e-ae5bc81a6a95


I x'd out my full domain, but this is the error in the log. 

Approval Workflow - Assign task to a SharePoint Group



I have created a oob approval workflow and upon requirement, need to assign the task to a group of people, so created a SharePoint group under that site and selected this group under approvers. Selected assign single task to each group entered (do not expand groups) as this is what I need exactly. One person in that group is going to approve the task and the remaining members will work as backups that means for some reason the first person is not available for approval any one from the rest of the group will claim the task. When I test this, SharePoint is sending the first email stating workflow has been started and then another mail with the task to approve and the final email saying workflow is completed after completion of all tasks. These 3 emails are expected until now, but sharepoint is also sending two more additional emails even after completion of the task saying 'Task has been changed' to all the members in the group, these two are not needed in any way as workflow has already been finished. Not sure why these additional email alerts are triggering. Users will be annoyed to see all these unnecessary alerts if this is how it works.

Any idea on how to fix this?
