Still unable to get alerts to work

  Asked By: Kari    Date: Oct 03    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 651

I am still having problems with SharePoint alerts.

I have confirmed that

-Email is set up properly in the SharePoint admin
-The server is referenced correctly in the Lock Table
-SharePoint timer service is running

I dont quite understand this, and it sends out emails to new users just fine. This really makes me think its some setting in SharePoint itself. Any other suggestions before I break down and call MS?

Does the account running  the timer  service have access to the content db? I
have read in various places that this is a requirement.

yes, I saw this as well and I was just able to confirm that it does have access to the content DB. Or at least that is what my DB admin says.

the inability to send these alerts... is this something new? Have they ever worked?
