On a task list when "Read access" is set to "only their own", and you select "Yes" for "E-Mail Notification", the user is not being notified when a task is assigned to them.
This was supposedly fixed in the Feb 2010 CU (see http://support.microsoft.com/kb/978396/en-gb) where it says...
"You are no longer notified when a task is assigned to you. This issue occurs when you set Read access to Only their own."
We're on the June 2010 CU and it doesn't seem to be fixed, or perhaps I'm missing something?
I've found others who have this issue post Feb 2010 CU (see http://sharepointalert.info/2010/07/email-when-ownership-is-assigned-item-level-permissions/)
Notification works fine otherwise, so their's no email issues etc.
Can anyone explain to me why this does not work?
