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

SharePoint 2010 Custom List default overriding selection


We are finding that the second list using a field name from the first list that is defaulted does not take the field entry but uses the default when the record is created.  The First list field does take the change and populate the record.  We need the second list to accept the field change in creating a new record.

SharePoint User tracking and PeoplePicker binding to SharePoint 2010 List



First, apologies as I'm not sure if this is best forum for these questions. I'm pretty new to both SharePoint and Infopath, but am now having to learn both ASAP.
The enviroment is Windows Server 2008 Standard SP2, SharePoint 2010 Foundation, SharePoint Designer 2010, InfoPath 2010 (but targeting InfoPath 2007 client as this is what is rolled out in the company) and VS 2010.

My first question has to do with how the PeoplePicker control interacts with a User field (Person or Group column) in a SharePoint 2010 list; I don't quite get how to bind the control to the field (which I move into MainDataSource after retrieving the list item in XML via OWSSVR web service). If I create the 2 groups and 3 fields manually (or programtically) in the MainDataSource, how do I populate them from the XML data and which are the bits that need to be written back when I update?

Next question: what is the easiest way to lookup extended information about a named user, e.g., to make sure that the person being selected for a field is a member of group ZYXXY. Remember I'm using InfoPath 2007 client.

My last question is a bit more general with respect to how/where SharePoint caches User information. The company keeps AD updated for current employees and other users, but obviously there is turnover and policy is to remove them. What happens to list ite

Sharepoint 2010 custom file crawling from user submission C#


Ive currently got a user control on a search page that displays related documents for a particular record based on the GUID. What I have is an integration between ms CRM and sharepoint. i.e got an iframe in CRM pointing to sharepoint showing related documents for a particular record. All that is working well but now my issue is this:

When a user uploads a document from crm, it uploads succesfully but as its not crawled, it wont appear in their iframe view. Initially in my code ive started an incremental crawl when a document is succesfully submitted spcs.StartIncrementalCrawl() the problem with this is that this typically takes about 3-4mins. what I want to do (if possible) is crawl the exact document/url uploaded. I see theres the StartAddresses.Add method in the ContentSource class but I cant get this to work as the URI i provide (url of the document url) causes an error.

Anyone have an example of this which is NOT a WebContentSource or does anyone have any ideas how I could do this?




Difference between UserProfile & User Information List Property Values?


If I checks the FirstName & LastName Property values in UserProfile it has someValue however the same properties does not have anyValue in User Information List, what would the reason behind this?

Even I could see comma (",") separated value for some Field in UIL however the same value is in UserProfile without comma (",") ....

ProfileSync and/or QuickSync will update the UIL with same Information avail in UserProfile, isn't it? In that case both should have the same value, right?

Custom Discussion Board List Definition in SharePoint 2010


Hi All,

I have created a custom discussion list definition using Visual Studio 2010 in SharePoint 2010. I had an issue, since by default, Visual Studio creates the custom discussion list definition as custom list. So, I have modified the my own Schema.xml with the standard SharePoint discussion Schema.xml by adding views section.

After deploying successfully, when i looked at the Threaded view, it gives a javascript error. I cannot open "Show Quoted Messages" link.

Could anybody face this problem? Please suggest on how to resolve this issue.

SharePoint 2010 - Column Validation (List Level) User Message Missing


I first saw this issue being discussed in January 2010 here, but there has not been any response in some time. 

What basically happens is when you set column validation for the list level (not per column) the message that alerts the user that the column does not meet the validation requirements is completely missing.   Both the default message or a custom message do not show up. 

Does anyone know if there is a hotfix for this issue yet?  I would expect more than a year later there would be one, but if so I can't seem to find it.  I would really like to correct this issue as column validation is a nice enhancement over SharePoint 2007.  Thanks in advance for any help.

How to get more information about the exceptions that can happen in SharePoint 2010 projects?

Creating Sites/Lists/List Items under Current User Context in SharePoint By Using SPUserToken

Usually we do this by performing the action under RunWithElevatedPrivileges method and updating the listitem using SPListItem.SystemUpdate() method (see here). but this approach has its own flaws like (RunWithElevatedPrivileges will run under system account, we cannot use SystemUpdate for SPSite,SPWeb,SPList, since it runs under system we will "CreatedBy" by as SystemAccount).
