I am trying to set up an alert on SharePoint to go out to everybody in an AD Security Group. I encountered the problem that the initial "Alert Created" email went out to everybody, but after that the actual alerts don't get sent. Googling this problem has
taken me to a lot of sites with a similar problem, but unfortunately I haven't found a solution that works for me.
It seems one of the key points is that the Security Group needs to be added to a SharePoint Group that has got access permissions to the list I am trying to alert on. I have done that. I have added the AD Group to a SharePoint Group that has got read, view
and contribute permissions to the list. But still no success.
I have added an individual alert for myself and that comes through just fine. But the alert to the Security Group just isn't being sent.
Am I missing something else?
