email notification

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 14, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

I have a document library with Content Approval value set to “Yes”.

When contributor clicks a "submit for approval" button, I would like send an email out to approvers automatically. I can setup a workflow to do it. But would like to find if there is OOTB function I can enable at document library level so it will send out email notification without any build customized workflow process.

email notification error 5.1.1


 I am getting an error when sending email via asp.net.  The error is "Mailbox unavailable. The server response was: 5.1.1...User unknown."

However, the email is getting sent.  Why is asp.net returning this error?

I'm using VS 2008, vb.net,  running 2.0 framework.  This happens regardless of whether I'm testing my application from my local machine or running production version.  Also, I can send a batch of emails and get the error for some but not all.

I would like to be able to count of the error messages really being accurate, so this situation is unhelpful to our users, because they will start to just ignore all error messages.




notification email not sent when updating a task programmatically

I have a task that's in the task list and has no value in the Assigned To field. When I update the field like this: listItem[SPBuiltInFieldId.AssignedTo] = SPContext.Current.Web.CurrentUser.ID; ListItem.Update(); The task is updated (the assigned to has filled in). But no notification has been send to the person in the assigned to. But when I change the assigned to manualy to another person, and then again to the person it was before, the notification is send. So the email works and the notifications are activated, why is there no notification sent when I change the assigned to programmatically?

Site FAQ: Email Notification Settings

There are several settings that come into play with email notifications coming from the ASP.NET forums:Edit Profile (http://forums.asp.net/user/EditProfile.aspx)1. Receive Emails: [ ] Yes  [ ] No - This is the master email switch. Setting this to [ ] No will prevent ALL forums-related emails from being sent to you, including password reset emails (if you find yourself in that situation, please use the site's Contact form to request password reset assistance).  Setting this back to [ ] Yes will allow emails to once again be sent to you.  This setting could be handy if you will be away from the ASP.NET Forums for a while and are not interested in receiving emails from the site while you are away.2. Receive rich (HTML) emails [ ] Yes [ ] No - This affects only the format in which emails are sent.  It has no bearing on whether or not emails are sent.  If [ ] No is chosen, the email will be sent in plain text.3. Enable Email Notifications of forum/thread subscriptions and replies to my posts. [ ] Yes  [ ] No - This is the default value of thread subscriptions. This value is checked only at the time of your first post to a thread, and the thread subscription is set to this value. Changing this value has no effect on any existing thread subscriptions. To discontinue (or start) receiving email notifications for a particular thread, see #5 below.&n

Sharepoint 2010 WorkFlow Task AssignedTo Windows Group doesnt send email notification

Removing standard text from custom feedback process email notification


My workflow has a Start Feedback Process action, which contains some pre-defined instructions. One of my instructions is to use a particular link to open the workflow history page – I have added this to force the user to open the form via the workflow history page (we're using Forms Services) because the email’s default link opens the form in the InfoPath client, not the browser. It also allows the user to be returned to the page where they will complete their workflow task (we're trying to make navigation as easy for them as possible).

Although I have defined my own set of instructions, the email notification I receive includes some standard text that links to the InfoPath form’s xml file. I don’t want users inadvertently clicking the “To complete this task…” link at the bottom of the email and having the form open in InfoPath. Here is an example of the email I’m referring to:

Email Notification on Discussion Board


how is it possible to setup a Discussion Board in which the person that initially started the discussion is notified automatically when someone responds to his/her discussion?

The first issue here is, that I don't see an option to have an automatic Email notification setup for a user. I think SharePoint only provides a method to let users setup their Notifications. I need something, so that for the user which started the discussion the Email notification is setup automatically.

The second problem I have with Email notifications is, that if a user creates a notification rule that says notify me, as soon as someone else changes an item created by me, that by SharePoint responses are not recognized as "changes".

How can I solve these issues? Are there third-party tools that might provide a solution?

Empty field on Alert Notification email sent to user when they add an 'Alert Me'




I'm trying to figure out the empty field that should be populated in the email that a user receives when adding an alert. The missing field is the bit in single quotes that is blank. I have added a link to a screenshot below as well.

What is the source of this field? Any ideas why it is blank?


thanks in advance.


Alert 'xxx' has successfully been added on '' .

You will receive alerts in e-mail. The timing and criteria for the alerts depend on the settings entered when the alert was added.

You can change this alert or any of your other alerts on the My Alerts on this Site page.

Send Email from SQL Server Express Using a CLR Stored Procedure

One of the nice things about SQL Server is the ability to send email using T-SQL. The downside is that this functionality does not exist in SQL Server Express. In this tip I will show you how to build a basic CLR stored procedure to send email messages from SQL Server Express, although this same technique could be used for any version of SQL Server.

If you have not yet built a CLR stored procedure, please refer to this tip for what needs to be done for the initial setup.

Sending a File Using Email Helper in WebPages/Razor


Note: This is particularly with respect to Email Helper in WebPages/Razor. Please don't post links using System.Net.Mail object.

2: ProcessFile.cshtml is running fine. I am getting the email but no attachement.

I tried changing fileAttachment input to type="file" but not file is being sent to my email. I just get the message send in body.

Question: How exactly this file attachment works using Email Helper in WebPages.
