Getting initial confirmation mails but not the Alert mails

Posted By:      Posted Date: May 22, 2011    Points: 0   Category :C#

Hi All,

I am getting initial confirmation mail as "Alert has been craeted for Tasks list successfully", but when i change anything there then no alert is triggered. I have tried all the below commands, but no joy

Use STSADM to verify properties

Note – To add to STSADM’s to paths use SET PATH=%PATH%;"c:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\12\BIN\"

STSADM -o getproperty -url http://YourSiteURL -pn alerts-enabled
You should see  <Property Exists=”Yes” />
STSADM -o getproperty -url http://YourSiteURL–pn job-immediate-alerts

You should see something like the default (but can be changed) <Property Exists=”Yes” Value=”every 5 minutes between 0 and 59” />

Use STSADM to reset properties

Some users have reported that even though these properties are listed correctly above, simply resetting them solved the problem. Be aware, some but not all have reported that this can remove existing alerts.

stsadm –o setproperty –url http://YourSiteURL –pn alerts-enabled –pv False
stsadm –o setproperty –url http://YourSiteURL –pn alerts-enabled

Multiple mails for OnError Event

Hi,I have created an event handler for a task's OnError scenario.

Database mail configured, but mails not getting send?


I've configured Database mail, but mails are not getting sent. Checked BOL & various blogs and forums, I'm performing correct steps, using correct smtp server name & port.


DM mail log says: 

The mail could not be sent to the recipients because of the mail server failure. (Sending Mail using Account 19 (2010-10-22T07:24:21). Exception Message: Could not connect to mail server. (A connection attempt failed because the connected party did not properly respond after a period of time, or established connection failed because connected host has failed to respond <IP_ADD>:25).


On restarting SQL Agent, log says:

Conditional alert box in view


When a view is shown, base on a simple conition in the model (Model.RenewalDate < DateTime.Today), I need to pop up an alert box saying 'Membership renewal is overdue'. There's no process required beyond that. Just a simply popup information box, then continue as normal.

I know the java to create an alert, or I could use the jquery modal, not bothered, but I can't work out the code in the view (yeah, I know logic doesn't belong in a view, but this really is a view concern as there's no functionality required beyond the message).

Sharepoint alert error



Something strange is happening here. I have a list whose itens alerts are not sending, but iclusion or permissions alerts for the same list are ok.

The strange is: I search for a fix, then I restarted the Windons Sharepoint services Timer, reset the alerts by stsadm tool (stsadm -o setproperty). the timer job status is ok too. and I just receive this error for this list, ONLY for this list...the other list I can receive the e-mails normally.

Can someone help me?
