User receives old task notifications in Outlook from Sharepoint 2007

  Asked By: Edward    Date: Feb 26    Category: MOSS    Views: 1701

I have a user who keeps receiving old task notifications in Outlook 2007, from completed tasks on an MOSS 2007 server. These tasks are long since completed. Is there anyway to prevent these notifications from reoccuring?

Is the task  a workflow task? Sometimes overdue task notification are kept sending even when the task is set to “Completed”. The cause of this problem is entries stuck in the ScheduledWorkItems table. The solution is to write some codes to use OM to delete the broken workflows. However it is not supported to modify SQL database and this needs development knowledge. If you want to ask for help about the programming problem, you can post your question in the development and programming queue.
