MOSS New User Email

  Asked By: Jamison    Date: Apr 28    Category: MOSS    Views: 12987

I would like to change the text in the 'Welcome to the XX group" email
that can automatically be sent when new sites/groups/users are created.
Where can I configure that as the default email is both irrelevant and
confusing to the average/new user?

If you are using MOSS2007 you can simply modify the "alerttemplates.xml".
This is stored in "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server
extensions\12\TEMPLATE\1033\XML" fiolder. Once you have changed this rememeber
you will need to know a bit of XML and also CAML to get this working. Lots of
fun though!! You can also if you want to be really creative, make your own
"alertemplates.xml" and then use the stsadm command to use it. You will need to
use the "stsadm -o updatealerttemplates" command for this. It is well
