Configure Incoming Email in SharePoint 2010 with a remote (public) SMTP Server

I have a standalone SharePoint 2010 Installation on my local network. Have configured the SMTP Services and a SMTP domain called "internalcompany.com". Created a hosts file entry also for that - now outlook is able to send emails to this domain; it reaches the drop folder and from there SharePoint picks it up and pushes to the document libraries. So far so good. But obviously this is not what I want to do: my www.company.com is my public domain and mail server is mail.company.com - how do I get the local SMTP point to this address - so that if someone sends an email to shareddocs@company.com (just like any other normal id), it comes to my local server and then SharePoint. How do I do this? Remember, my server is standalone and my network is not domain based and does not have exchange.Karthick

Incoming Email Issue


I just installed Windows 7.  Often I get a notice indicating an incoming Email cannot be opened on my system.  I know some are safe since they include Microsoft, windows, friends, etc.  I must download each and add to my safe list.   Does anyone have a solution? 






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

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

How do you extract data from the xml attachment of an incoming email and set it as metadata in a doc

Hi, I currently have a document library that contains InfoPath forms. As a form is loaded into the document library I need the data to be extracted from the infopath file and then set as properties/metadata of the file. The infopath forms will be sent to the SharePoint site as an email attachment. So basically, an email is sent to the SharePoint server with an InfoPath form as an email attachment. The InfoPath form needs to be extracted from the email and uploaded to the document library and at the same time updating the document library metadata with the infopath form data. This has been done using Visual Studio but can this be done using SharePoint Designer 2010 now that we have upgraded our site to SharePoint 2010? Any guidance will be greatly appreciated! Thanks Michael

Email address regular expression

I used the function below to validate email addresses. // Function to test for valid email address.         public static bool IsValidEmailAddress(String emailAddress)         {             Regex regex = new Regex(@"^[_a-zA-Z0-9-]+(\.[_a-zA-Z0-9-]+)*@[a-zA-Z0-9-]+(\.[a-zA-Z0-9-]+)*\.(([0-9]{1,3})|([a-zA-Z]{2,3})|(aero|coop|info|museum|name))$");             Match match = regex.Match(emailAddress);             return match.Success;         } This regular expression works for amy.charles@test.com, but not robert.o'neil@test.com. Can anyone help me to modify the regulation expression, making it to valid for robert.o'neil@test.com Thanks in advance!

Require Unique eMail Address in CreateUserWizard?

I want my users' email addresses to be unique.  I have looked around and found various examples of code to add to the web.config file that all look similar to the following: <membership defaultProvider="CustomizedMembershipProvider"> <providers> <add name="CustomizedMembershipProvider" type="System.Web.Security.SqlMembershipProvider" connectionStringName="xmxmxmxmm" requiresUniqueEmail="true" maxInvalidPasswordAttempts="5" passwordAttemptWindow="10" minRequiredPasswordLength="8" minRequiredNonalphanumericCharacters="1"/> </providers> </membership> However...whenever I add this to the web.config file and run the page with the CreateUserWizard I get the following error: Parser Error Message: Unrecognized configuration section membership. I am building a website based on .Net 3.5 using Visual Studio 2008. Does anybody know how I can add the <membership> section to the web.config so that these CreateUserWizard parameters can be added...or...is there another way of going about this altogether? Many thanks in advance...MDCragg

Global Address List (GAL), enumerating the GAL and Dist. Groups, obtain email address

I have an application in which I need to populate a drop-down with names and email addresses from the Global Address List (GAL). If that is too much data (which it probably will be), I would then need to obtain a collection of same data (name/email address) from a Distribution List to populate the drop-down.   I have never done this sort of thing before, so I apologize for the vagueness, but can anyone point me in the right direction?  Thanks in advance.
