Edit Default notification e-mail in MOSS

  Asked By: Melissa    Date: Jun 12    Category: MOSS    Views: 3699

I was wondering where I would go to edit the e-mail that is generated when a
user is added to a group in SharePoint. I've searched google and unfortunately
the results I get back really aren't that helpful. My web-fu apparently sucks.

At the bottom of the ONET.XML file for each Site Definition you will see
a ServerEmailFooter element; it refers to a token in an RESX file under
..\12\Resources like so:


The Team Site, STS Site Definition, shown above, gets the message text
sent to users that are granted access to a securable object from the
ServerEmailFooter token in the ..\12\Resources\core.RESX. It contains
the following text:

<HTML><body><div dir=ltr>What is a SharePoint site?<BR/>
A SharePoint site is a Web site that provides a central storage and
collaboration space for documents, information, and ideas. A SharePoint
site is a tool for collaboration, just like a telephone is a tool for
communication, or a meeting is a tool for decision making. A SharePoint
site helps groups of people (whether work teams or social groups) share
information and work together. For example, a SharePoint site can help
you: <BR/>
* Coordinate projects, calendars, and schedules.<BR/>
* Discuss ideas and review documents or proposals.<BR/>
* Share information and keep in touch with other people.<BR/>
SharePoint sites are dynamic and interactive -- members of the site can
contribute their own ideas and content as well as comment on or
contribute to other people's. <BR/>

What I was really trying to do was to edit  the links that are sent when
a user is added  to a User group. I wanted to take out the link to "people and
groups," and since we use dual athentication, I wanted to set an appropriate
link for our internal and external users. Hopefully, I can figure out something
that will handle alerts in a similar way.
