Policies are not enabled on e-mail contacts generated by SP2007 e-mail enabled lists

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 27, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

Hi all,

at a customer I have the following situation. We have a SharePoint 2007 Farm together with Exchange 2010. Whenever we enable a list for incoming e-mail the corresponding Exchange mail contact is created. So far, so good. But one of the properties of this e-mail contact is the toggle  "Automatically update e-mail addresses based on e-mail address policy" is not set. This is an issue because default it only gets a .local address and that is not enough.

Whenever I add an e-mail contact by hand this toggle is set. So I suppose that the way SharePoint sets this account differs from doing it by hand. Has anyone come accross this problem. Does someone have a solution or workaround.

Incoming Mail enabled MOSS 2007 document libraries.

I would like to ask is there a way to get the incoming emails to go into a subfolder because right now the email goes into the root of the document library?

Unable to filter the "E-mail To" field in email enabled document library

Hi, We have setup a few email enabled docuement libraries to store emails relating to project work. Is there a way to make the "E-mail To" field in the library be filtered? It is greyed out and doesnt give you the option. The "E-mail From" and "E-mail Subject" are able to have a filter applied to them but for some reason the "E-mail To" field wont let you filter the content. The probelm is that there are over 500 files in the library and the easiest way to find messages is to be able ot filter this column in the library if it is at all possible.

Columns of E-Mail Enabled List


Hi everyone,

hopefully someone can help me with this MOSS-Issue:

when you activate incoming e-mails for a document library, sharepoint automatically creates a few columns in the document library such as "e-mail to", "e-mail subject", etc.

The problem is that it seems not be possible to access a few of these newly created columns.

In my case i have to create one list where the user should be able to send and also drop e-mails to while using the same columns for the emails metadata (to,from. email datetime). When i drop e-mails to the list, it doesn't care which 3rd party tool/outlook add-in i use - they are all not able to access the newly created columns to save the email metadata into.

So is there a way to change the columns used for incoming emails in a document library ?

Kindly HELP.........

Database mail process does not start, no error generated, for only one maintenance plan

I have three maintenance plans:

1. Application DBs - 2am (checks integrity, full backup, log backup)
2. System DBs - 3am (checks integrity, updates statistics, full backup)
3. Backup and log file cleanup - 3:30am (removes backup history, .bak and .trn files)

For items 1 and 3 above, I see the database mail process start up and receive emails that the jobs completed.  For item 2, no email....the database mail process does not start and there are no errors in the event log.  The job history shows that the job completed successfully.

I'm having the same problem on a different server, except that items 2 and 3 email me their results, but item 1 does not.  Same exact job steps and times of execution.  None of the jobs are set to notify the operator, the notification is coming from the maintenance plan.

Obviously I've gone through the basics:

Configured an operator
Created a default, public profile
Enabled mail profile in SQL Server agent
Tested mail delivery

How do I diagnose the database mail process just not starting?  Has anyone seen this before?

SQL Server 2005 SP3, with KB 970892 applied.

Failure sending mail: Exception 0xc0000005 was generated at address 0x000007FEE3D4122B Mail will not


I'm running SSRS 2008R2.  I'm getting the above error a a couple of email subscriptions.  Some email subscriptions work, a few I'm getting this error message.  I've seen the posts about resetting IIS, SSRS and Agent Service.  I've done this, and it does seem to temporary fix the issue, but then it comes back. 

The one post where it says the "From" field containing more than 255 characters.  This is not my situation.

I need to find a more permanent fix for this issue.  Does anybody have any further insight.  Some postings seem to be related to older versions of SSRS.  I'm on the latest.



Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.

Cascade dropdown lists in a repeating table (Browser-enabled form)


I am sure similar questions have been asked before...but:

I have a repeating table with 2 DDLs...let's say: state and city

city is currently sourced from web service which takes the value of the state as parameter.

I allow a user to add a new row in the repeating table to select another state ; and thus return related cities on the same row as the state..and so on...

The obvious question is: is that achievable without code-behind?  I have read about people using "current()" but it all seem to apply to the filter data which does not work for browser-enabled form....so should I use Web services at all?

Thanks in advance.

Email Help (System.Net.Mail)


Hi I have a annoying problem. 
I have created a page which takes users details for a quote.

I have then created the form to be emailed to both the user and myself. (Which works fine ATM)

However I would also like to be able to attach a file containing terms and conditions to the email.

I have tried doing this using 

EmailMsg.Attachments.Add(new Attachment("C:\\attachme.txt"));

But everytime that line of code is hit it fails and is caught by my try catch.

Take that line out and the email sends fine, put it in and it breaks the whole page.

Am I missing something really obvious?
