Customising the Subscription Notifications

Does anyone know of any way to customise the look/content of the
subscription notification mails? Which files do I need to fiddle with?

How about this, which I found with google?

There is a file called results.xsl in folder:


This XSL renders the notification  mail.

You will need to map an m: drive to access it though use:

subst m: //./backofficestorage/localhost/sharepoint portal server

on the server and access the file above through windows explorer

There are two files  present (approval.xsl & results.xsl) under

Approval.xsl refers to the e-mail sent out for document approval, and the
other refers to the e-mail sent out for subscription  notification.

Copy them to your local PC and modify them. I believe by default, you just
can't drag'n drop them back to the original location. So what I suggest is
the following:

1. Go to your SPS server and create a share where you can

copy the XSL files to.

2. Copy your file(s) to that share.

3. On the server, map to the Web store like so:

subst m: <file:///\\.\backofficestorage> \\.\backofficestorage

This will create an M: drive for you, and allow you to copy the files from
your share directly to the required folder.
