[Sharepoint 2007] How can i change the email of a sharepoint user ?

Hi all,

I have created a new sharepoint user.

1. First of all i have added a new user in active directory. However at that time i forgot to give an email address. Big mistake !

I cannot send mail from sharepoint workflow with the new user.

2. Therefore I updated the email addresd in active directory afterwards. But the change was not reflected in sharepoint.

I updated the mail in sharepoint adminsitrative user profile. But it did not make no difference in the user moss profile.

I followed the article in http://sharepointnotes.wordpress.com/2008/05/05/syncing-wss-and-moss-user-profile-properties-with-active-directory/

I did the following commands :

1. stsadm -o sync
2. stsadm -o sync -synctiming m:2
3. stsadm -o sync -deleteolddatabases 6
 stsadm -o sync

None of these commands updated the user properties mail for my new MOSS User.

I also rebooted the machine but my MOSS user email was not updated.

Also I used the tool at http://userprofilesync.codeplex.com/releases/view/13227
like the following :

tool>UserProfileSync.exe -url http://mysite -ssp http://mysite:37239/ssp/admin
I did not make any difference

What else can I try in order to update the email of my MOSS user ?

How to make "UserId" equal to the "logged-in user" in vb code behind


I need to insert a declaration in the codebehind function below that will make the variable "UserId" equal to the "logged-in user". In what way do I need to change the code below (elsewhere in the project, I successfully make reference to basically the same code and make the UserId equal to logged-in user by using this handler expression inside an image control: ImageUrl ='<%# Eval("UserId","Image.aspx?UserId={0}")%>'...But in the case below, the function is not fired by this expression, but rather by CustomValidator). Thanks very much.

Task assignment to user without read access in 2007 results in no email to assignee, no warning to a

It appears (from observation and searching) that SP 2007 will not send a task assignment email when the assignee does not have read access for the assigned task and there is no warning when assigning a task to someone who will be unable to read it. I have not been able to find any mentions of attempting to address this quirk by either an item event listener or a workflow that would either prevent the assignment or task the originating user to fix the issue by either changing the assignment or having them added to the appropriate group.  I could see one done badly causing a cascade of tasks. The approaches that I've thought about are: Attempt to block assignment by hooking ItemAdding and ItemUpdating on the task content type.  In ItemUpdating, you could use SPListItem.DoesUserHavePermissions since the SPListItem should be there, but you'd may have check the list since I don't think SPListItem is available at that time.  I could see this causing problems when the assignment is via workflow or something that doesn't like other code interfering with its task creation. Hooking ItemAdded and ItemUpdated to assign a new task to the assigning user to either change the assignment or have the assignee added to the users with access to the site. Define a workflow which could be enabled for a list that would check if any new or modified task is assigned to users with

Hello everybody.I am working on Login control and I am new in ASP.NET. So far what I did is :1. In Website->ASP.NET Configuration I change the form authentication to internet.2. I created a user profile3. This gave me a ASPNETDB.mdf database.4. I added this code :<connectionStrings> <remove name="LocalSqlServer" /> <add name="LocalSqlServer" connectionString="data source=.\SQLEXPRESS;Integrated Security=SSPI;AttachDBFilename=|DataDirectory|aspnetdb.mdf;User Instance=true" providerName="System.Data.SqlClient"/> </connectionStrings> in web.config file.4. I added login control to my login page :<%@ Page Language="C#" MasterPageFile="~/MasterPage.master" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeFile="Login.aspx.cs" Inherits="Login" Title="Untitled Page" %><asp:Content ID="MainContent" ContentPlaceHolderID="MainContentPlaceHolder" Runat="Server"> <h1>Please Login</h1> <asp:Login ID="LoginAuth" runat="server" > </asp:Login></asp:Content> 5. And the login.aspx.cs file has :using System;using System.Collections;using System.Configuration;using System.Data;using System.Linq;using System.Web;using System.Web.Security;using System.Web.UI;using System.Web.UI.HtmlControls;using System.W

WCF Service stops after throwing a unhandled exception :no user is logged on.

Hi All,       I have written a WCF service which is hosted as a Managed windows service. I consume this service in a web application. The service is built using a httpBasicBinding and security Mode ="none". I'm now getting the following exception, after which the service stops  "An unhandled exception ('System.ComponentModel.Win32Exception') occurred in CMMonitorService.exe [1812]. Just-In-Time debugging this exception failed with the following error: Debugger could not be started because no user is logged on." I had tried changing the security mode to Transport/Message. with windows credential then I get a access to the path denied error. Can anyone provide hint on what am I missing and what would be the appropriate security mode and client credential to use along with basichttpBinding?

FBA users (ldap provider) don't have any user profile info when logged in.... what am I doing wrong

Sharepoint 2010, Claims authentication, FBA using ldap membership provider and role provider against Active Directory.  User profiles all imported just fine -- used the LDAP FBA provider hitting Active Directory to do so too.  whenever an FBA user logs in, it doesn't seem like sharepoint is picking up any user attributes.  targeted audiences don't work and MY SETTINGS is blank other than account and name.  If the same user logs in but through Active Directory, everything works just fine... targeted audiences, etc. Am I doing something wrong or can I not use the LDAP provider to authenticate to AD and also use the user profiles from Sharepoint?  GRRRRR.  All this to get around the Windows Authentication popup so I can customize a better looking logon experience.  Help?
