No emails

  Asked By: Nadia    Date: Mar 01    Category: MOSS    Views: 679

This is SharePoint 2007: when a task is created, an email is supposed to be sent
to the person to whom the task is assigned ("Send email when ownership is
assigned?" is checked Yes).
So, I assign a task, but email. I look in the ULS and I do see these entries:
There is no Web named "/subsite/subsubsite/etc./Allitems.aspx". I have another
subsite which works with no problems - create a task list, assign tasks and
emails go out like they are supposed to. Ok, this is weird: So I go to the
subsite root and put the user into the owner group and now when I assign a task,
they get the email. So far, I have Goggled the error, but the only hit is for an
update that didn't complete. Any suggestions?

That's interesting. We have never been able to get the emails to work right.
When one of our task lists sends an "Ownership Assigned" email the "Edit this
task" button on that email is always broken. No one has figured out what is

Are you certain the SMTP server is set correctly in Central Admin?

I sympathize with you!
