SharePoint Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for SharePoint enthusiasts. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have suddenly facing an issue relating to Task Notification by email. All was working perfectly but now people from my site do not get an alert email when a task is assigned to them.

By Alert email I mean the default email which Sharepoint sends. It is not a workflow made by us but its a default feature.

I use WSS 3.0!

Can someone please help me out as many people from my company are dependant on email alerts only & its frustrating when a task goes unattended.

If you need more information from my side please let me know.

Thx!

good flow chat :) –  saumilm Dec 11 '10 at 10:32

Check the timer jobs for Email Alerts in Central Admin, something might've stalled or fallen over.

Also, in the task lists settings (I think in Advanced Settings) there is a "Send e-mail when ownership is assigned" checkbox. Be sure it is still checked. –  Rob Wilson Dec 10 '10 at 14:24
    
I have tried both things given above but still no luck! Any other place to look into? –  saumilm Dec 11 '10 at 6:35
