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.

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?

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.

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.

[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 ?

make json call to send an email


the aspx:

<div class="contactSubmit">
                <asp:ImageButton ID="ibSubmit" runat="server" ValidationGroup="vgContact" /></div>


the jquery :

$(document).ready(function () {
            // Add the page method call as an onclick handler for the div.
            $(".contactSubmit").click(function () {
                    type: "POST",
                    url: "Home.aspx/GetDate",
                    data: "{}",
                    contentType: "application/json; charset=utf-8",
                    dataType: "json",
                    success: function (msg) {
                        // Replace the div's content with the page method's return.

The problem is that I need to use the text in a text box in my webmethod, and I can't because it's static, this results in a compilation error:

    public static string SendContactForm()
