Old Alerts keep coming up

  Asked By: Johanna    Date: May 01    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1042

I am seeing an issue where OLD ALERTS keeps going out to the end users.
These alerts are dated from 2006 to 2010. Does anyone of you know why
this is happening? Does it has something to do with Search schedule or
incomplete search tasks?

This is a long shot, but have you checked the mail server to make sure you
don't have a bunch of old messages lying around in the queue?

Like I said, it's not very likely but it can't hurt to check.

I don't remember the answer to this one but I believe someone touched on it in
our not too distant past. Search the archives of the group and I think you'll
find it. It had something to do with an STSADM command having to do with
flushing/resynching/updating alert settings on a site (or something ;)

Those users  should be able to go into Outlook and delete old alerts. That's what
I used to ask them to do when it came up.
