Email Notifications

  Asked By: Christopher    Date: Nov 21    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 719

Puzzling situation:

I have a SharePoint server with 3 workspaces. I can subscribe to a
folder or category and see the front page notifications when I log into
the dashboard; however, I never receive an email notification, even
though my SMTP server and address are defined correctly.

I add a fourth workspace and create a subscription. Everything works
the way it should for this workspace, which means the SMTP server is
defined correctly and is reachable (I am also using the same email

Any ideas?

On your server, check to see if the scheduled tasks are setup
properly. Go to Programs-->Accessories-->System Tools-->Scheduled

There should be 4 scheduled tasks for each workspace.

Thanks for the directional heading -- the scheduled tasks were the
problem and I did not even think of it. Of course I probably knew about
them but just forgot them....
