Map a sharepoint public site with 2 public urls

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 26, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

Hi all,

I have created a sharepoint publishing site and extended it to a internet zone with annonymous access. Now I am able to see my site as http://www.mysite.com. Now I have 2 problems.

1. Client also want to see site even if anyone types http://mysite.com .

2. Also there is a requirement to run site with url http://www.mysite.org.  I have tried to do it with Alternet Access mapping but this is not working.

Thanks in advance,

Gaurav Dixit

Configure Incoming Email in SharePoint 2010 with a remote (public) SMTP Server

I have a standalone SharePoint 2010 Installation on my local network. Have configured the SMTP Services and a SMTP domain called "internalcompany.com". Created a hosts file entry also for that - now outlook is able to send emails to this domain; it reaches the drop folder and from there SharePoint picks it up and pushes to the document libraries. So far so good. But obviously this is not what I want to do: my www.company.com is my public domain and mail server is mail.company.com - how do I get the local SMTP point to this address - so that if someone sends an email to shareddocs@company.com (just like any other normal id), it comes to my local server and then SharePoint. How do I do this? Remember, my server is standalone and my network is not domain based and does not have exchange.Karthick

Sharepoint 2010 & Exchange Public folders?

HI All, We are planning to move our Public folders to SharePoint 2010. But Before I would do that. I would like to know: 1. Can we receive emails with attachments in Sharepoint 2010? If yes, how the attachments are stored? Inside the email or separate? 2. How the mail enabled library and lists are different from Mail enabled public folders and Distribution list? 3. What is the format of the mail, .msg or .eml when saved in SharePoint? 4. How do we view content of the sharePoint public folder site inside outlook client? 5. What are features of Public Folders that I can't accomplish using SharePoint 2010?     Your help would be highly appreciated...

I know that there are many other platforms around apart from NING. Any suggestions? or NING is still the most suitable one? Thanks

Sharepoint Outlook Public Contacts Firstname Lastname Not Updating Correctly


Users using Outlook 2007 Sharepoint public contacts have been having problems where firstname lastname have amalgamated into lastname.

First Name John
Last Name: Doe

Appears as

I had the user change the first name/last name within Outlook Sharepoint public contacts but this does not reflect the change in other users Outlook contacts.

e.g. User 1 (Outlook 2007) modifies existing contact to

Lastname: Doe

Setting SharePoint site URLs


I'm just getting started with SharePoint Foundation 2010 (and ASP.NET as well).  When I go my newly created site at http://machine, the URL is automatically redirected to http://machine/SitePages/Home.aspx.  Could someone explain how this happens?  I don't see a corresponding SitePages\Home.aspx physical path, IIS virtual directories or settings, etc.

How would one change such a URL?  Apparently it's supposed to be under Central Administration->Site Setttings->Look and Feel, but it's playing Waldo on my system.

Thanks for any help.

Hide public view of list on left menu - no SD - Sharepoint 2003


Hi folks,

I'm working in a crippled sharepoint environment - basically our multinational company has given us a Sharepoint with a Teamsite template and no tools to get the best out of it.

I have created a site with a list containing 3 public views. 2 of these views are for the "the workers" to input and view data. The 3rd view has all items, and is for management information for a select number of users. These users do not use the view directly, it is picked up by an Excel spreadsheet.

The 3rd view in it's completeness is sensitive information, and we would like to remove the view from the views menu on the left hand side. I suspect that this may be possible using javascript code, in a CEWP. I am making this assumption because this article seems to be doing something similar:


I am not familiar with javascript or the objects referred to, although I have used javascript previously to amend column widths in a view. 

Any suggestions?




SharePoint 2010 Search - Exchange 2010 Public Folders


Hello,  I have two questions that may be fairly complex.  We have just built a SharePoint 2010 test environment and are crawling Exchange 2010 Public folders with search.

We have portal links pointing to public folder HTTP addresses that have been broken since the HTTP functionality went away in exchange 2010.  We have since built a SharePoint 2010 instance and are using OWA to crawl the Exchange 2010 public folders (per http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee806927.aspx).  This seems to be working well with a few caveats.

Question #1:  Now that we have all of our public folder data in the index, is there a way to form a query that will give me only items in a specific fublic folder discussion path?  before E2k10, we would link to something like http://ExchangeServer/public/TopNodeFolder/Level2NodeFolder/DiscussionBoard?Cmd=contents.  Now, what we are hoping to do is add links with formed queries to the portal that point to result sets that are being served from the Search index.  i.e. Give me all the items that have this public folder path in the path.  Is this possible?  I would like the user experience to be a list of

Everything on subsite published but site is still not public


Hi all,


This is my first forum post accompanying my first try with SharePoint.

I have set up af set as subsite to a larger general site. Now that pretty much all the customization of the master and layout pages is done I want to see how it looks like to the public. So I tried publishing all the sites and everything, but user credentials are still necessary to access the site.

Honestly I don't understand it, for I have set all pages, layouts, masterpages and everything I can think of to published, but still, no luck. What am I missing? When i press the 'Check for un-pubslished items'-button on any page it says that there is nothing unpublished. I is really getting quite frustrating. Especially because this page needs to be done sunday or monday at best.

Do the welcome pages of the site (and my subsites of which i have 8-9) have to by of the type 'Welcome Page' in orden for the page to be public? It doesn't seem to make any difference, when I change the page type to welcome page in stead of ordinary (custom made) page layout. Although I haven't tried making all the chosen welcoma pages of the whole subsite (child subsites included) Welcome Pages.

But I'm now reaching the pulling-out-my-hairs stage of frustration. Can you help me in any way?

Thanks in advance
