Limiting MySites and Email during closed POC.

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 31, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
SharePoint 2010, Small Farm Installation. Win2008R2, SQL2008R2  Howdy, I'm wrapping up a Proof of Concept and about to deploy it to users.  Management has asked that I limit the visiting of the Mysites to only the core POC folks.  About 40 or so people, likely a slowly expanding circle. Once the POC is completed, I envision it opening up to the entire company, and creating an extranet, and a second farm for clients.  This POC will enclude Enterprise Search, Productivity Hub, and numerous collaborative type sites.  What is the best way to effectively remove rights to all but the minimal group from accessing the Mysites.  If I pull the profiles from AD for the entire company does this somehow provide rights to this area? Also, is there a way to block emails from being sent to staff, with the exception of the POC group..  I hope I'm explaining this with enough detail.  Thanks,

Send Email from SQL Server Express Using a CLR Stored Procedure

One of the nice things about SQL Server is the ability to send email using T-SQL. The downside is that this functionality does not exist in SQL Server Express. In this tip I will show you how to build a basic CLR stored procedure to send email messages from SQL Server Express, although this same technique could be used for any version of SQL Server.

If you have not yet built a CLR stored procedure, please refer to this tip for what needs to be done for the initial setup.

Sending a File Using Email Helper in WebPages/Razor


Note: This is particularly with respect to Email Helper in WebPages/Razor. Please don't post links using System.Net.Mail object.

Following this tutorial: http://www.asp.net/webmatrix/tutorials/9-adding-email-to-your-website

Under "Sending a File Using Email" section what exactly is the code trying to do.

1: The SendFile.cshtml does not have any option to select file.

2: ProcessFile.cshtml is running fine. I am getting the email but no attachement.

I tried changing fileAttachment input to type="file" but not file is being sent to my email. I just get the message send in body.

Question: How exactly this file attachment works using Email Helper in WebPages.

I have staff area of my site I am protecting with forms authentication using c# and .Net 4.0. What I want to do is let the staff members register on the site but instead of the confermation email being sent to them I want it sent to me so I can go in and approve it.

I have searched around this site and find many topics on the SendingMail method but none seem to properly address my issue. Can anyone help me out?

How to send an email with information in query string


First I will say I googled (Binged to make Bill happy) for this but could not find anything, perhaps I am not stating what I need correctly;

I have a website that a customer creates orders (for a printing company) and after the order, I would like to email the customer a link to view the status of their order;

I need to send the CustomerID in the link so on the returning page if a CustomerID is detected in the querystring, I "auto login" the client and open the "Dashboard" for the order page for that customer.

Can anyone point me in the right direction as to how to send the link and how to parse the querystring to get the values from the link;

Thank you if you can point me in the right direction.

Fetching the Currently Logged in user Email


Hey Frnds,

I am using the System.DirectoryServices.UserPrincipal.Current.EmailAddress to fetch the Currently logged in users email from AD.

If  debug my sol am getting the Exact mail id of that Particular user for ex:john@in.domain.com.

If i host My Application on iis

And Access my App am getting some other Email id instead of the john@in.domain.com.

I have changed the Application Pool identity to NetWorkService.

Can any one tell what could be wrong




email notification error 5.1.1


 I am getting an error when sending email via asp.net.  The error is "Mailbox unavailable. The server response was: 5.1.1...User unknown."

However, the email is getting sent.  Why is asp.net returning this error?

I'm using VS 2008, vb.net,  running 2.0 framework.  This happens regardless of whether I'm testing my application from my local machine or running production version.  Also, I can send a batch of emails and get the error for some but not all.

I would like to be able to count of the error messages really being accurate, so this situation is unhelpful to our users, because they will start to just ignore all error messages.




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?

System.Threading AND email


Hi guys,

I really need some help (and also some code example), in how to use System.Threading to send emails.

The issue is:

a) I have a function that sends emails;

b) But I don't want to keep the customers waiting for the email being sent;

c) so, I figure it out that the System.Threading is the best way to do that; But I don't know how exactly I cant use it.

PLEASE, i'm VB - not C# - developer, and I really appreciate help in that language.

I can't use Windows Services or SQL Jobs...

Could you help me on this?

Linq2Sql error: "Invalid attempt to call Read when reader is closed."


I've read up on this error from other posts and on other sites, but haven't found a solid resolution to the issue yet. My setup is as follows:

I have a RepositoryBase class that fields certain db calls that all repositories need to perform. In one such call, "GetSecurityGroup", it works most of the time, but will seemingly at random throw an exception with the error "Invalid attempt to call Read when reader is closed." All other Repository classes inherit from this one, and they all use the same DataContext object, which I understand isn't thread safe. Since there could be multiple calls to the DataContext object on the same page, perhaps one is using the DataContext when the next tries to do so. I'm not sure. What can I do to ensure this doesn't happen?

MySites colleagues update


Running MOSS 2007.  I am having difficulty with the Colleagues webpart within MySites.  Across the organization, I have found multiple users whose Colleagues do not accurately reflect their Organizational Hierarchy, either as it displays in Sharepoint or as it displays in AD.  Imports do not resolve the issue.  The data for these users is accurate in AD, and in their profiles.

While I am aware the webpart allows the user to manipulate their colleagues manually, we do not permit it in our environment.  I would like to find a way to broadly correct the data rather than having to go to each site individually.  So here are my questions:

First, is the colleagues list meant to stay synchronized with the AD hierarchy listings, or is it populated once upon site creation and that's it?
And, depending on that answer, is there any way to force the webpart to synchronize as an administrator?  Or to repopulate the list as if new?

Thanks for your time.
