Retrieve user email address from text box

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 10, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

I have an Technical Service Request InfoPath form and an email alert needs to be sent to two users each time that the form is completed and submitted to a library. An email alert needs to be sent to our technical manager which is a relatively easy workflow to set up in SharePoint Designer. The other user which needs to be alerted is the engineer which could be one of six people (we only have one technical manager).

The person completing the form will have to enter the name of the engineer to whom the alert should be sent to. I am struggling to send an email to this user. Is there a way to associate an email address with the name which is entered? We could use drop down lists and need to automate this in some way.

We dont need to retrieve full user information from AD but just need the email address of the user whose name is captured in a Text Box named 'Engineer'.

Any suggestions or assistance would be greatly appreciated,

Many Thanks

Is it possible to display the friendly name or email address of LiveID User Using Claims Authenticat

We have finally gotten LiveID authentication to work.  However when we specify a user to add to a sharepoint group, we need to do it via the unique id that live uses.   The user does login using their usual email address and password, but on the sharepoint side they see the PUID@live.com as the logged in user, and when we want to specify the user to have access to the a particular site or library, we have to do it by the same PUID@live.com.  This display makes it difficult to manager users on the sharepoint side.   Is there something I missed on setting up of the authentication provider, or is there something I can do to get sharepoint to retrieve the other information so that we can view the user through the email or full name that live provides?   Steve Paplanus

Hi all

I'm not sure how to structure the code for this but what I want to do is be able to add data to a database, and once this has completed successfully, then email the user to say the details have been added successfully to the database.

I need to:

1. Check that the relevant data has been added into the database then

2. Email the details of the relevant data when completed.

[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 ?

Task assignment to user without read access in 2007 results in no email to assignee, no warning to a

It appears (from observation and searching) that SP 2007 will not send a task assignment email when the assignee does not have read access for the assigned task and there is no warning when assigning a task to someone who will be unable to read it. I have not been able to find any mentions of attempting to address this quirk by either an item event listener or a workflow that would either prevent the assignment or task the originating user to fix the issue by either changing the assignment or having them added to the appropriate group.  I could see one done badly causing a cascade of tasks. The approaches that I've thought about are: Attempt to block assignment by hooking ItemAdding and ItemUpdating on the task content type.  In ItemUpdating, you could use SPListItem.DoesUserHavePermissions since the SPListItem should be there, but you'd may have check the list since I don't think SPListItem is available at that time.  I could see this causing problems when the assignment is via workflow or something that doesn't like other code interfering with its task creation. Hooking ItemAdded and ItemUpdated to assign a new task to the assigning user to either change the assignment or have the assignee added to the users with access to the site. Define a workflow which could be enabled for a list that would check if any new or modified task is assigned to users with

Bad email address exception handling

 I have a form that used to send an email to someone who had posted  a listing on my site, with a copy to the sending user. The code below is intended to catch the exception that occurs when email address of the person posting the listing (TxtBxTo.Text) is not valid, and also intended to catch the (unlikely) event that the user has entered and confirmed an invalid email (TxtBxEmail.Text) for himself on the form. I have tested this code for all combinations of valid and invalid email addresses for the listing poster and the user filling out the form and sending the email Everything works fine except for the situation where the email address for the listing poster is valid but that of the user  is invalid. In this situation I am getting the message on the ConfirmResaleEmail.aspx page that says: "Your message has been sent to the contact person, with a copy to you. " when I should be getting "Woops, it looks like your own email failed when we tried to send you your copy. " I am hoping some sharp-eyed person can spot the problem.  Here is the code:         ' this sends email from a user with email TxtBxEmail to the contact perons listed in TxtBxTo        msg = New MailMessage(TxtBxEmail.Text, TxtBxTo.Text, TxtBxSubject.Text, sb.ToString())    &n

SharePoint 2010 email enabled list with workflow has incorrect User ID when items are emailed to the

I have set up an approval workflow for a document library that has email enabled. Emails come into the document library fine, however, if an item is emailed to the library the workflow kicks off with the initiator as "System Account" rather than the person who submitted the email. This makes the error of "The e-mail message cannot be sent. Make sure the e-mail has a valid recipient." come up. If someone submits a document directly to the library (by logging into sharepoint and submitting) everything works fine. The person submitting by email is a valid sharepoint user and the profile shows the correct email address. The Created by and Modified by fields show the correct person (rather than System Account), it's only the workflow User ID that shows incorrectly if document is emailed to library. Any help or ideas would be appreciated. Thanks
