Database Mail Not Sending Mail ?


Dear Sir,

To Send Mail Using Database Mail from SQL Server 2005 SP3, I have performed following steps.

  1. In Surface Area Configuration for Features I have Selected Enable Database Mail Stored Procedure.
  2. From SQL Server Management Studio, I have Created Mail Account & Profile & Tried to Send Test Mail but It is not sending.
  3. I checked Database Mail Log then it displays following message.

The mail could not be sent to the recipients because of the mail server failure. (Sending Mail using Account 3 (2011-05-17T15:30:45). Exception Message: Cannot send mails to mail server. (The operation has timed out.).

I also tried by change System Parameters in Mail Profile but It fails.

Please help me to solve this problem.

Problems with Forms Authentication in DD 4 site


Hello,  I am seeing a strange problem with Forms Authentication in my DD site.   A user logs into and can view/edit/delete data all day, but when they execute a Custom Filter against data (for example , a control DynamicData/Filters/CustomerLastNameSearch.ascx ) then the site auth fails, and redirects to the log in screen.

in web.config I have

     <authentication mode="Forms">
            <forms name=".Star" loginUrl="~/Login.aspx" protection="All" defaultUrl="~/Default.aspx" path="/" timeout="43200" cookieless="UseCookies" />     

Offhand, I am thinking two things : that DynamicData/Filters path requires some special handling for some reason, or the control extension ascx is causing auth to get confused.   Has anyone else experienced this or have any suggestions?  Thanks!

SQL and Outlook: Enable Database Access and Updates Through Exchange and Any E-mail Client


Using Microsoft technologies, you can insert, edit, query, and delete database entries using any e-mail client such as Hotmail, Outlook, Yahoo, or even WAP phone. While e-mail is certainly a powerful and widely used tool, it is usually not integrated with an application for performing any tasks other than sending reminders. The application scenario described here, an e-mail-based SQL update program, uses a simple data model; however, this solution will apply to any data model that you are working with. It will also eliminate the need for complex n-tier Internet applications and serves as a low maintenance solution for providing data access.

ASP.NET: Collect Customer Order Information on an Internet Site Using XML and Web Forms


XML has quickly become the new data structure standard for everything from database access to cross-platform computing. XML is typically considered to be a vehicle for data exchange, dynamic data presentation, and data storage. However, the potential of XML far surpasses those limited applications. This article examines one new use: the gathering of data across a number of forms in an ASP.NET Beta 1 framework application. The sample program is a Web app used for ordering pizza. It uses ASP and C# to gather order information and then stores it in XML. To build the application, several concepts are explained, including data collection, order persistence using cookies, grouping input forms, and formatting the data for display.

Writing Data to database with jQuery Forms, ASMX Webservice, & JSON - help!



Can someone point me in the right direction on how to submit data from a jQuery form to a ASMX webservice? I have gotten everything on the form ready to be submitted to the database and now I am stuck on how to send it over using $.ajax(). Everything I have read tells me how to get data from a webservice and display it with jQuery, but not the other direction nor how to access the json data within the within the webservice service(similar to a Request.Form approach with ASP.NET forms).

In other words: 

1. What do I need to do to my webservice to make sure it can receive data from the jQuery form. 

2. What do I need to do in jQuery to receive an acknowledgement the save on the server side was successful. 

I can explain more if need be, but if there is a comprehensive tutorial on not only reading, but also WRITING data with jQuery, JSON, etc. I would love to get pointed in that direction.

Forms Authentication Add SQL Database Variable

I am using Forms Based Authentication I have extended the Forms Authentication Tables creating a custom table called Profile_Contact that holds the user's GUID, username, email address, and other information. I have another table called Profile_Account which holds company account information such as Company Name, address info, phone numbers etc. This table has a Key Field called IDProfileAccount. I include the IDProfileAccount field in the ProfileContact user table so I can associate the user with a specific Company.For the login page, I am using a basic login page created with using the Visual Studio login controls.When the user logs in, they are sent to the appropriate page as identified by the role the user has been given. This all works great. Now I need to extend the login page so that when the user logs in not only is the user's name and GUID placed in session, I would also like to have the IDProfileAccount record placed in session as well so that I can filter the records the user sees as only those records of the Company the user is associated with. I know how to add static variable to a session and how to retrieve them to filter data, what I need to know is how to retrieve the data from the SQL table on login and sending it to the session. I would think it would be something along these lines:Partial Class login Inherits System.Web.UI.Page Protected Sub Logi

Cannot crawl sharepoint site and mysite after database attach upgrade form sharepoint 2007 to 2010.

After database attach upgrade site and mysite from sharepoint 2007 to 2010 , I have full crawl and get "The crawler could not communicate with the server. Check that the server is available and that the firewall access is configured correctly. If the repository was temporarily unavailable, an incremental crawl will fix this error. ( Error from SharePoint site: HttpStatusCode ServiceUnavailable The request failed with HTTP status 503: Service Unavailable. )" for mysite and get "Access is denied. Verify that either the Default Content Access Account has access to this repository, or add a crawl rule to crawl this repository. If the repository being crawled is a SharePoint repository, verify that the account you are using has "Full Read" permissions on the SharePoint Web Application being crawled." for sharepoint site. The content access account for search is "db_owner" of both of site and mysite. How do I solved this problem ?
