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?

SQL and Outlook: Enable Database Access and Updates Through Exchange and Any E-mail Client


Using Microsoft technologies, you can insert, edit, query, and delete database entries using any e-mail client such as Hotmail, Outlook, Yahoo, or even WAP phone. While e-mail is certainly a powerful and widely used tool, it is usually not integrated with an application for performing any tasks other than sending reminders. The application scenario described here, an e-mail-based SQL update program, uses a simple data model; however, this solution will apply to any data model that you are working with. It will also eliminate the need for complex n-tier Internet applications and serves as a low maintenance solution for providing data access.

SOAP Toolkit 2.0: New Definition Languages Expose Your COM Objects to SOAP Clients


In SOAP Toolkit 2.0, the Services Description Language (SDL) has been replaced with the Web Services Description Language (WSDL) and the Web Services Meta Language (WSML). WSDL and WSML files describe the interfaces to a service and expose COM objects to SOAP clients. This article describes a custom tool, IDL2SDL, which takes an IDL file and produces WSDL and WSML files without waiting for a DLL or TLB file to be generated. Also shown is a customized development environment in which WSDL and WSML files automatically reflect the changes to IDL files.

SharePoint Workflow E-mail Hyperlink has the Spaces Between Two Words Are Removed

I have a very simple Workflow, that includes href link to Infopath form.
If the form name includes spaces, the URL redirects to a The Form has been Closed message, indicating that it cant find that form.
In our scenario, the file name of the document/form in SharePoint when saved is called "Travel Request - <submit date>"  as noted with spaces.
The Hyperlink URL in the email generated by the workflow appears to encode all values in the name after the first two words (after Request).  See below.  after the word Request the spaces are encoded properly.     its replacing the first space with it appears %0d%0a (CR LF)
The URL below is what is displayed when right clicking, and selecting Edit Hyperlink in the email

I can reproduce this in development and production.  Any ideas on how this can be resolved?

Issue with List Definition of same base content type and deployed via same feature


I am trying to deploy two custom list definitions using only one single feature.  Below are the details of my issue.

  • Two custom list definitions
  • Each custom list definition has its own custom content type
  • Each custom content type inherits from the base content type Picture (Type = 109)
  • The custom list definitions are grouped together under one single feature
  • The custom content types are grouped together under a seperate single feature

When I deploy my solution in this configuration, the second list definition gets the first custom content type applied to it and the list schema from the first list definition is also applied to the second list definition.

What makes this more interesting, when I seperate both of the list definitions under two seperate features it all works fine.  Custom content types and list schemas get applied correctly.

Can anyone tell me why I can not deploy both list definitions under one single feature?

If you need me to post any of the origional code or XML to this post please let me know.



SP Outgoing E-Mail Error


Hello Community,

I have a MOSS Server running on Virtual PC.  I have installed and configured MOSS to include incoming and outgoing e-mail.  Incoming e-mail works fine and my lists are receiving e-mail.  My problem is outgoing e-mail.  Right now, any outgoing e-mail produces an error message that is caught by the System Event Viewer, here is the error message:

Event ID: 6857

Description: Cannot connect to SMTP Host

I have checked and rechecked my outgoing e-mail settings and I'm convinced they are correct.  I don't have any firewalls on (it's a virtual development server on a platform that has ant-virus, firewall, etc.).  I have enabled verbose logging for SharePoint Workflow Infrastructure events but the SP Logs only have the same exact message as System Event Viewer.

I've checked out the other posts here and searched the internet as well but no luck.

Any ideas?
