Error with Alerts

  Asked By: Margarita    Date: Jan 12    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 897

When I try to create an alert, this is what I receive as the error
message, any one has any idea what I need to do (and probably how)

"Your alert cannot be created at this time. The server administrator
should verify that search services are running on an available index

As your error  message states, is the SharePoint Portal alert  and
SharePoint Timer services  running on your index server? They need to
run in order for alerts  to work. Also, be sure you have the correct
mail server  designated in SharePoint Central Administration.
