SharePoint send email Alias change?

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 22, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
invitation email comes from Sharepoint Admin like SharePointAdmin@companyname.com, it needs to come from My Network Invitation <SharePointAdmin@companyname.com>. But it is not all emails. Only If I am using  SPUtility.SendEmail  from perticular site collection. from other site collections will be same SharePointAdmin@companyname.com.

Is it possible?  just change to alias name.

Trying to send email using Sharepoint Designer 2007 workflow and email enabled list


I have a a list that recieves email. I have few fields that shows me the originator: "E-Mail From" and "E-Mail Sender".

I am trying to create a workflow that will generate an auto reply to the originator but the SPD fails to recognize the email address in these two fields. It's either truncating part of it or uses the html ( href=mailto:Demo@DemoSomething.com) in the To field.

Thank you,


[Sharepoint 2007] How can i change the email of a sharepoint user ?

Hi all,

I have created a new sharepoint user.

1. First of all i have added a new user in active directory. However at that time i forgot to give an email address. Big mistake !

I cannot send mail from sharepoint workflow with the new user.

2. Therefore I updated the email addresd in active directory afterwards. But the change was not reflected in sharepoint.

I updated the mail in sharepoint adminsitrative user profile. But it did not make no difference in the user moss profile.

I followed the article in http://sharepointnotes.wordpress.com/2008/05/05/syncing-wss-and-moss-user-profile-properties-with-active-directory/

I did the following commands :

1. stsadm -o sync
2. stsadm -o sync -synctiming m:2
3. stsadm -o sync -deleteolddatabases 6
 stsadm -o sync

None of these commands updated the user properties mail for my new MOSS User.

I also rebooted the machine but my MOSS user email was not updated.

Also I used the tool at http://userprofilesync.codeplex.com/releases/view/13227
like the following :

tool>UserProfileSync.exe -url http://mysite -ssp http://mysite:37239/ssp/admin
I did not make any difference

What else can I try in order to update the email of my MOSS user ?

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 Designer - Send external email


Hi guys.

This is my problem:

I have a SharePoint List Item with with two fields: the first is a people field (corp. users) and the second is a text field for email external customers. This customers have hotmail or gmail email addresses.

I designed a workflow with SharePoint Designer for notifying both users and customers when a list item is created. This workflow has a only one step: send an email.

For users in the company (in the corp. domain) the worflow works fine and send the email to the users and they can check the notifications; but for customers that has a external email (like hotmail or gmail) the workflow does not send the email.

I wrote the customer email (customer@hotmail.com) in the To: field in the send email action fo the workflow for testing and is not send the email to the customer. I´ve set the outgoing email on the farm.

Is it necesary an additional configuration? Can SharePoint designer send a email to users that has email from Hotmail and others?

Thanks for any help.

Send email from sharepoint webpart


Hello All,

I have a webpart in place which has a function that utilizes SPUtility.Sendmail method to send an email to the recipient.


  1.  SPUtility.SendEmail(SPContext.Current.Web, false, false, pAlias, subject, body);

              I have provided smtp server in the IIS hosting the sharepoint site and configured authentication settings to 'Windows'

              However when I run the webpart, it doesn’t  send an email. It doesn’t error out either.

      2.  So as a second approach, I used  classes in System.Net.Mail namespace to send email but got the mail service instance from

          SPContext.Current.Site.WebApplication.OutboundMailSenderAddress as in the following lines 


Send Email from SQL Server Express Using a CLR Stored Procedure

One of the nice things about SQL Server is the ability to send email using T-SQL. The downside is that this functionality does not exist in SQL Server Express. In this tip I will show you how to build a basic CLR stored procedure to send email messages from SQL Server Express, although this same technique could be used for any version of SQL Server.

If you have not yet built a CLR stored procedure, please refer to this tip for what needs to be done for the initial setup.

How to send an email with information in query string


First I will say I googled (Binged to make Bill happy) for this but could not find anything, perhaps I am not stating what I need correctly;

I have a website that a customer creates orders (for a printing company) and after the order, I would like to email the customer a link to view the status of their order;

I need to send the CustomerID in the link so on the returning page if a CustomerID is detected in the querystring, I "auto login" the client and open the "Dashboard" for the order page for that customer.

Can anyone point me in the right direction as to how to send the link and how to parse the querystring to get the values from the link;

Thank you if you can point me in the right direction.

I can't send email from workflow.


I’ve got strange problem. I’ve created workflow with Visual studio 2008 which works fine. If workflow create task user gets email with alert and it works  - user gets email.   The problem is that I would like to use Workflow component: “SendEmail” for some cases. And if I enter directly into component email address for field: “TO” the message will be delivered. But if I use simple code with the same email address for field ”TO” it doesn’t work (field TO is empty now).

private void sendEmail_ExecuteCode(object sender, EventArgs e)



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.
