Can't change domain name in email notification

  Asked By: Jackson    Date: Sep 05    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1875

Sharepoint Portal Server sends email notification with
sender address in following form


Looks like sender email cusotomization is almost
impossible as dozens of messages regarding sender email
and subject customization are still unanswered in several

Sharepoint sender email format satisfies my implementation
requirements. I only need other domain_suffix to be
present in sender email address. I changed suffix on
server in TCP/IP settings, but still notifications are
sent with suffix which was present at Sharepoint
installation moment. Looks like old suffix is captured at
install moment and fully qulified server name is saved
somewhere, but I didn't find old domain suffix string
anywhere on server: neither in registry, neither in files
text content, neither in network settings.

Please tell me what is to be done to change domain suffix
on current installation?
What settings are used in generating fully qualified
server name for sender email in notificaiton?

If you are referring to SPS 2003 then you should read the
section "Configuring E-Mail Settings" in the SharePoint Portal
Server 2003 Administrators Guide. It explains how to set the SMTP
server, From address, Reply To address  and Character Set.
