When I create a new account in Active Directory, then sign in to Sharepoint (2010) with that account, and then try to sign up for alerts, I can, indeed sign up for alerts, but I get an error message saying:
You do not have an email address
Now, the address IS there in Active Directory, and I can see it in MySites, too. It is in the right field as well.
I tried running the timer jobs, but it still doesn't work. How can I get it to take?
