Can anyone shed some light on the error i am receiving on my sharepoint server. I see this when a workflow has been started but the reviewers are not listed within an email that is sent to the document Owner.

Sharepoint 2010 Workflow Email Issue


So I wanted to create a workflow for a list I have already created in Sharepoint.  The list is an "Issue Tracking" list.  When I add an item to the list, and then modify that item, I am notified by email that changes have been made to this item.  But when my workflow includes the "Send an Email" action in Sharepoint Designer, the workflow results include the message: The e-mail message cannot be sent. Make sure the outgoing e-mail settings for the server are configured correctly. 


I first thought it was the workflow and how it was looking up the email address to send to from variables in the workflow.  But then I changed it all the way down to simply being the single step: "Send an Email" and the email address is hard coded in the properties with my email address.  Since I get the notifications that changes have been made to the items in the list, I wanted to beleive that it was something else.  But I checked into the log file that was suggested on another thread here, and found an error when I searched the log for "SMTP:"


#160002: Cannot connect to SMTP host 'mail.xxxxxxxxx.com'.    a84dc162-7c30-43a1-b58e-ae5bc81a6a95


I x'd out my full domain, but this is the error in the log. 

Trying to send email using Sharepoint Designer 2007 workflow and email enabled list


I have a a list that recieves email. I have few fields that shows me the originator: "E-Mail From" and "E-Mail Sender".

I am trying to create a workflow that will generate an auto reply to the originator but the SPD fails to recognize the email address in these two fields. It's either truncating part of it or uses the html ( href=mailto:Demo@DemoSomething.com) in the To field.

Thank you,


I can't send email from workflow.


I’ve got strange problem. I’ve created workflow with Visual studio 2008 which works fine. If workflow create task user gets email with alert and it works  - user gets email.   The problem is that I would like to use Workflow component: “SendEmail” for some cases. And if I enter directly into component email address for field: “TO” the message will be delivered. But if I use simple code with the same email address for field ”TO” it doesn’t work (field TO is empty now).

private void sendEmail_ExecuteCode(object sender, EventArgs e)



Incoming Email Issue

Add Issue ID to an email alert?


Dear all,

(running WSS 3.0)

I'm desperately trying to add the Issue ID to the alert email that is sent when a list item is assigned to you. I have looked around and followed many tutorials online, however none of my changes have had any effect. So far I have done:

  1. Copied alerttemplates.xml to customalerttemplates.xml
  2. Edited customalerttemplates.xml
  3. Removed "ID" from <ImmediateNotificationExcludedFields>
  4. Ran stsadm -o updatealerttemplates -url http://server -filename "C:\Program files\common files\Microsoft shared\web server extensions\12\template\XML\customalerttemplates.xml"
  5. Ran iisrest
  6. Restarted Sharepoint Timer service

However even after doing that the email sent when an item is assigned is just the basic default! I've just tried to add the ID to the most simple section of the email (footer) however nothing seems to change the email alert.

I've followed guides such as:

Sending an workflow email with image

I am trying to include an image in an email that I am sending out from Sharepoint designer. I have followed the below instructions from Microsoft's site and all I get in my email is the text. Anyone have success with this? <img src="http://www.communitywestbank.com/images/cwb_logo.jpg"> or <img src="http://www.communitywestbank.com/images/cwb_logo.jpg"/>       How to from MS site- Include an image It is not possible to embed an image or graphics file in the body of an e-mail message that is sent by your workflow. However, you can include a graphic in your message by using the HTML image tag (<img/>) to link to an image that is stored as a JPEG (.jpg) file and uploaded to a picture library in your site. In the body of your message, in the location where you want the linked image to appear, type the <img src=""/> HTML tag. Position the insertion point between the two double quotation marks (""). Type or paste the URL for the JPEG image file

Where is the issue tracking workflow?

Hi All, Going through the out of the box workflows currently and I can't work out where the Issue tracking workflow would be found? Technet doco refers to both the three state and issue tracking as being separate workflows and that the issue tracking workflow is about we pages. http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc263148.aspx#DefinedAgain  I can create an issues tracking list and add a three state workflow to that. Just trying to learn about the Issue Tracking workflow. Any ideas on where I can add or configure this workflow? Thanks, Gavin  

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

workflow email not allowing WF to compile

I have a workflow that is intermittently not working. I have the Action: Send an Email and I am using a SharePoint group to send the email too. Now all of a sudden the workflow won't compile and tells me there are errors. The SharePoint Group is showing up as the problem that won't allow the WF to compile. It looks like this: Email *SharePoint Group* If I put the SharePoint group into the CC field as well as the To field, then the WF compiles. Is this a permission problem?

Workflow/Task Email Truncating Titles Containing Period "." Sign

We are using the built-in approval workflow which assigns tasks to approvers in a standard task list.  When the email's are sent for both task and approval notifications the title contained in the body is truncated when it contains a period sign.  For example, a file name of "1.2322.343 Test File" shows up just as "1" in the body and subject of the email.  See below. This used to work just fine in MOSS 2007 so I assume this is an issue with 2010.  Anny ideas? Email Body: Approval has started on 1. Participants are Due by 1/1/0001 12:00:00 AM Each person will receive a task to approve 1. The tasks will be assigned one at a time for participants shown above.

Sharepoint 2010 Workflow issue

I am using SharePoint Designer 2010 to implement a workflow approval process on InfoPath forms. I added the workflow on an InfoPath and although it shows me that the workflow is completed, it doesn't do what it is supposed to do. It is supposed to send an email to the Manager once the form is submitted and fulfills certain critieria. It doesn't send that email. The workflow is fairly simple: If Form:Department equals (ignoring case) XYZ Email xyz   The type of workflow is "List Workflow". I am not sure where I am going wrong. It looks a simple thing to solve but my mind seems blocked. Any clues??
