Sending Custom Emails

  Asked By: Stuart    Date: May 28    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 7256

Does anyone know how to send emails in Windows SharePoint Services?
Or alter the ones that are sent to subscribers? Specifically, I
want the function similar to the alerts you can set up, but I want
to send it to other people and add additional text to the body of
the email.

I believe the system messages generated in the alerts  are done so by a .dll file which cannot be altered.

There are SP (SQL Stored Procedures) in the form of compiled DLL (and other Dlls as well) that brings the Alert functionality. However look into

\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\60\TEMPLATE\1033\XML\

directory for XML template files that these dlls use to format the message text.

Which XML files in particular are you referring to that relate to controlling custom  alert messages? The only system xml files of relevance in the folder you indicated are for file icon associations and HTML transformation applications.

Notifitem.xml, Notiflisthdr.xm.,
Notifsiteftr.xml, and Notifsitehdr.xml files. I was able to alter
these albeit with large restrictions as to which variable you can
add. However, you have to reboot before the new formats take effect.

You can send custom personalized emails to external recipients from contact list, or just adding them manually - using this solution www.enovapoint.com/.../
(But only for SharePoint Foundation 2010 and SharePoint Server 2010)
