I have basic information about alerts, I can setup them, manage them via CA or power-shell scripts, I can test the SMTP sending functionality via telnet if they are not sent, but still don't know how exactly they works.
Do you know about some web address or manual with detailed information please?
I'm looking for answers like:
- Notification (subscribe) e-mails are sending directly from WFE? How?
- Alerts via owstimer? How?
- Is there any queue for undeliverable alerts?
- If they are sending from all three servers in farm, can we direct them to one server only? (because we can catch undeliverable ones when alerts stop working).
Alerts are very important for some our application and when job fails, we lost a lot of notifications in a black hole...
