Sharepoint 2010, Not able to send emails?

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 30, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint



I have installed Sharepoint 2010 on Windows server 2008 with SQL 2008. The installation was successful and I am able to access Sharepoint but when I add users and try sending invitation email I get error message. I have setup all the email configuration setting on Sharepoint, i.e. provided the SMTP server name and outgoing and incoming email address but still getting the same error message. I thought there might be some SMTP issue, so installed Outlook and configured it and I am able to receive emails on outlook using the same SMTP server. Could someone help me on this?

how to send emails to multiple persons at the same time from sharepoint workflow using visual studio


Hi Every one !!

   I am trying to send copy of a document for multiple directors at my client for their approval.

   The director can approve the document at the same time.

   Hence, I would like to know how to create a task to send emails for multiple people at the same time from a sharepoint workflow using visual studio 2008.

   I see there is a parallel activity. But it gives me only 2 paths ( means would be able to send only for 2 users )

   If creating a separate task to send emails for each user is an inefficient way, please let me know if there is another good way of sending emails to multiple users.


Thank you

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.

Within SharePoint 2007, can one send a document to a 2010 Records Center?

I have copied the 2010 Send To URL (http://hostname/records/_vti_bin/OfficialFile.asmx) and created a Send To connection within the 2007 environment.

ClientAccessPolicy file in SharePoint 2010

I am upgrading my Silverlight demo code from the old beta to beta 2 and see that there are a few new considerations for the deployment of ClientAccessPolicy.xml files. In a previous post I demonstrated how to do this for SharePoint 2007. The heartburn that I get with that approach is any site collection owner or designer can drag the file into the site collection and open the site up to unwanted client access issues. In 2010 the virtual path provider no longer serves the files from the root of the site collection
