Problem sending an email to all users of a sharepoint group

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 16, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
 
Here is what we did so far: 1. created an OU in AD and delegated full control to Sp service account 2. Configured incoming email settings 3. on sp site created a new group with full control permission 4. created an email distribution group for this group with an email address 5. in CA approved the distribution group to be created in OU 6. In Ad we can check the OU is there with the specified email address 7. added users to the group, but when we send an email to the group email address it does not forward to the group members. Please advice

Sharepoint 2007 Email problem

  

I've used Sharepoint 2007 to create my website. Within my web pages I've included Forms in order to capture people's contact details, so that when they 'Submit' the form their details are emailed to my email account. The problem is that when I go to Form Properties and insert the email address to which I want the data sent, I receive this message: "This form cannot be configured to send results via email. The web site may be based at a disk-based location, or a location that has not been configured to send email. Contact your system admin or ISP for more info. Would you like to remove the email recipient Yes or No"   

I am satisfied that the settings within the webhosting service are correct. Is this functionality available with Sharepoint 2007 or do I need to switch to alternative software.

InfoPath 2010, People Picker Control - problem with sharepoint group targeting

  

Hello!

I have developed InfoPath 2010 web form with People Picker Control. I want to set sharepoint group which would be used in People Picker Control to search people. Ok, I set sharpoint site url and aftet that - select sharepoint group 'Test InfoPath group' I need. Everything works fine - I can select only people inside sharepoint group 'Test InfoPath group'.

Now I deploy my solutions (wsp package) on different site collection and sharepoint server installations. In this case People Picker Control can't find right sharepoint group 'Test InfoPath group'. Sometimes People Picker Control select another group, not that I have select in InfoPath Designer and sometimes People Picker Control select all users.

What's wrong with it and can I configure People Picker Control to select sharepoint group?

Email not sending out in Sharepoint 2010

  

I have installed SharePoint Std 2010 and the emails are not sending out. I originally was trying to get the email to send out through the local Exchange server with errors popping up on both servers. Even though I had told the exchange server to allow for anonymous email from the SP Server it was not allowing it. The Sharepiont Server would log an error that it could not connect to the Exchange server.

I have installed the SMTP service on the SP server and configured it as the Microsoft Technet article says to. (Basically allow for anonymous for the outbound for the server. I can't get the SP Server to send any email out of the system. It will not send email from alerts, workflows or adding users the site.

It goes through the motions and there are no longer any errors coming up at all, but no emails either.

Any help would be great.

Thanks,

Profile synchronization problem - can successfully import single users but not from a group - can yo

  

I can successfully import a single user into SharePoint 2010 from AD (proves settings permissions are correct) and the number of user profiles increases and I can locate the user including profile data from active Directory. But when I try to import an Active Directory global security group no users get migrated. In fact the single users profile gets deleted.

Can somebody explain whether it is possible to migrate users into SharePoint 2010 from with security groups in Active Directory?

Also when I retried to import the group of users it deleted the single user that I had successfully imported, I didn’t think this was possible, I ran an incremental synchronization, i need to import roughly 2000 users and was going to do it in stages to make sure all users were imported but if the process can remove users then each sync run could be adding users and removing users, how will I ever keep track?

Below is the synchronization run report, are there logs files that could give me more information?

SharePoint Designer workflow task - problem with multiple users selector in InfoPath form

  

Gentlemen,

 

I have got an issue with InfoPath form generated for my SharePoint Designer workflow task. There is a multiple users selector that requests users from a task assignee. The problem is that only the first user entered got saved.

 

I am using SharePoint 2010 Standard Server (release). Steps to reproduce are the following:

Sending Email alerts before expire date on document (using Sharepoint Designer)

  

I need to trigger an email alert 2 weeks before the expire date on document (document library).

 

The document library has a List/Site Column for an Expiry date.


I need to clarify the following:

 

I assume it is possible to create a CALCULATED field (Alert Date) of DATE (assigned to List/Site Column) that would

have a formula of: Expiry date - 14 days. 

 

Is it possible to trigger a workflow (created in Sharepoint Designer) AFTER the Alert + Expiry dates have been set

and ONLY if the Alert Date  = Todays Date? 

 

Is it possible to add a variable in the workflow of type DATE that MAPPED to the current item 'UPLOADED' to the

Document Library and was calculated against the number of days to be subtracted?

 

If this was possible could it be bound to the PAUSE UNTIL DATE action?

 

The Workflow would only then be triggered (p

SharePoint workflow sending email to wrong person

  
Hi, I have a workflow that sends an email to the person that created the form whenever a change is made.  All has been working fine but one email has been sent to a completely random person rather than the user that created the form.  (e.g. K Pauls created the form and K Pauls name is in the "Created By" field within the form but H Walker got the e-mail).  H Walker is not included anywhere in the form but is listed in the automatically populated "Created By" Column.  Any clues?
