Sharepoint overwriting emails with overwrite turned off

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 02, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

Whenever I email a message directly to sharepoint, it overwrites files of the same name. The incoming email setting is as follows:

Overwrite files of the same name? No.

Is there possibly another setting overriding this one?

A way to monitor or audit what emails SharePoint sends

Hello, I am looking for a way to track what emails my SharePoint site sends out.  I am currently using workflows for an approval process and would like a way to check to make sure the correct emails have been sent without having to hound down each individual user and confirm through them.  Is there any way to do something like this? Thank you!

SharePoint upload files from windows explorer and emails from outlook by drag and drop

Guys, I need to have this functionality to upload files and mails by drag and drop, now sharepoint allows it by having that folderview in IFrame which takes the dropped item, but this does not allow files with spcial characters due to http URL related issue. How can I customize or program this to allow files with special chars in name, if not possible then how can I rename before the drop is over ? thanks, ram    

Sharepoint 2010, Not able to send emails?




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

Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 Application Template: Bug Database - can you customize the emails?

My company is using a ms appliation template downloaded here: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=C72D23AF-F556-47AA-A6F2-0027246A9928&displaylang=en#RelatedLinks.  How can I change the emails that get sent when an application is assigned?

SharePoint custom workflow sending duplicate task assigned emails


I'm running into an issue where a custom sequential workflow I've built in VS2010 is sometimes sending duplicate emails to the user to whom created tasks are assigned. Note: this is a Site workflow not a List workflow, in case that matters.

It's a pretty simple flow: i've got an InfoPath initiation form, and am using an OnWorkflowActivated workflow action to take the data from the form and popluate some workflow variables, then I've got a CreateTask workflow action that sets the AssignedTo value on the Task Properties, along with some other Task Property values.

The task gets created successfully in the task list, and in most cases a single email goes out to the person the task is assigned to. However, sometimes (and I haven't been able to figure out what is causing the difference) up to 3 duplicate messages are sent out, as well.

I've seen other posts in the forums where this sort of thing is happening with OOTB workflows ( this thread, for example: http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en/sharepointworkflow/thread/66f94e07-a690-4166-aaeb-b7f5bc424fe4?prof=required). However, duplicate tasks are not being created (unless I'm missing the duplicates somehow -- they're not showing in the task li

Emails to SharePoint doc libraries seem to drop but do create folders

I have a MOSS2k7 farm & I'm using Exch2k7 for mail transport. We've recently upgraded from 32bit to 64bit so i still have one 32 bit MOSS server with the SMTP functionality set up and working. I've been trying to move that service to one of my new 64bit servers but have an issue. For some reason, when i set everything up to point from my old 32bit SMTP server to my new 64bit SMTP server, the mail doesn't reach the libraries.

For example: I have an email enabled library using doclibrary1@test.com. The library is set up to create a top level folder based on the recipient and to keep the original mail and attachments. I email that library and can see it hit and leave the Drop folder on my SMTP server. GREAT! Uh, no wait. In checking the library, i see the folder created based on my email address but no original email and no attachment. If i change it to not sort by original sender and to not keep original email, seems like nothing happes other than the message hitting/leaving the drop folder. I've sent messages about 2MB to it and i can see the appropriate size of the message in the Drop folder. I've even tried creating a brand new library. Same results.

I'm at a loss

SharePoint 2010 alert emails are displaying strange symbols in outlook 2007


After recently setting up alerts in SharePoint 2010, when receiving email alerts the format looks pretty screwed up.  We are using Exchange 2003 and Outlook 2007.  When setting up SharePoint outgoing email, the character set is 65001 (Unicode UTF-8).   Below is a picture of the email.  Anyone have any suggestions?







Retrieving Claims of a SharePoint user when Claims Based Authentication is turned ON



How to get the cliams associated with a SharePoint user remotely.

Ex: We have crawled SharePoint Web Application with internal connector.

ACLs on the documents look like i:0#.w|domain\username

I need to search our index and display results. But I was not able to figure out how to get this to working.

Everything resides outside of SharePoint i.e., on a server1 other than SharePoint server.

When a claims user logs on to this server1, I need o validate the rights of that user and display results.



SharePoint Aspirant

Unable to add users into sharepoint if i am Using emails as account name in Active Directory.

I am using moss 2007 version and Active directory version 6.0.. . my AD domain is siamint so if i add a user as vikas. it gets added in AD with logon name as vikas@siamint.com now if i add a user sahil@yahoo.com into ad. it gets added as sahil@yahoo.com@siamint. now when i try to add user from peoples and groups,site settings in a sharepoint site; i gets user siamint\sahil in people picker. rather it should be siamint\sahil@yahoo.com. it means the name is truncated from @. Is this a sharepoint error or what. Ultimately i think it means we cannot add users with @ in their usernames.

Changing the graphics on the home page of a SharePoint site

When you create a site in Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services by using the default Team Site template, the home page includes two default graphics. A Windows SharePoint Services graphic appears in the body of the page, and a picture of a house in a circle appears near the site title. You can change these graphics to customize your site. Changing the smaller graphic requires a Windows SharePoint Services compatible Web page editor

Displaying SharePoint lists in Web Parts

When you create a built-in or custom list in Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services, Windows SharePoint Services creates a Web Part, a basic building block of a SharePoint site, to display that list. These Web Parts are called List View Web Parts. Windows SharePoint Services stores List View Web Parts in the site collection Web Part gallery. (The site collection Web Part gallery is the most central gallery of Web Parts for a work group. By default, the gallery name is the name of the site, such as "Our Team Site Web Part Gallery." )

Take a tour of your SharePoint site

What is a SharePoint site for?
A SharePoint site is a Web site that provides a central storage and collaboration space for documents, information, and ideas. A SharePoint site is a tool for collaboration, just like a telephone is a tool for communication, or a meeting is a tool for decision making. A SharePoint site helps groups of people (whether work teams or social groups) share information and work together. For example, a SharePoint site can help you:

Coordinate projects, calendars, and schedules.
Discuss ideas and review documents or proposals.
Share information and keep in touch with other people.

Six easy ways to customize your site using Web Parts in SharePoint

Becoming familiar with Web Part customization techniques gives you a range of page-customization choices. For example, you can customize your site's home page so that it displays the specific information that your team needs. You can rearrange the list items on the home page, add lists, and even change the images on the home page. As you become more familiar with Web Part Page customization techniques, you can build interactive Web Part Pages that makes the data in lists more dynamic and useful, and you can add new Web Parts that provide access to external data and Web services.

Working with SharePoint document libraries

Document libraries are collections of files that you can share with team members on a Web based on Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services. For example, you can create a library of common documents for a project, and team members can use their Web browsers to find the files, read them, and make comments. Users with Microsoft Office 2003 can check out and edit the files as if they resided on a local or network drive.

By default, your team Web site comes with a built-in document library named Shared Documents, which is listed on the Quick Launch bar as well as on the Documents and Lists page.

Out of the Depths of SharePoint's XML Hell

I described how a new open source tool called sporm significantly simplifies unit testing SharePoint. Making SharePoint unit testable is my absolute favorite feature of sporm because SharePoint is notoriously hard to unit test. But sporm provides other benefits as well and its ability to pull us out of the depths of verbose loosely typed XML hell and into LINQ excellence is next on my list of favorite features. So in this post I'll describe the pre-sporm technique of querying with CAML, how to query data using sporm, and finally how sporm supports SharePoint's unique architecture of allowing multiple content types per list and what that means to you.
