SPAlertTemplateType.GenericList The first alert template in Alerttemplates.xml. GenericList is used unless there is a match to one of other event types.

SPAlertTemplateType.DocumentLibrary Notification of changes in document libraries

SPAlertTemplateType.Survey Notification of changes in surveys

SPAlertTemplateType.Links Notification of changes in links

SPAlertTemplateType.Announcements Notification of changes in announcements

SPAlertTemplateType.Contacts Notification of changes in contacts

SPAlertTemplateType.Events Notification of changes in events

SPAlertTemplateType.Tasks Notification of changes in tasks

SPAlertTemplateType.DiscussionBoard Notification of changes in discussion boards

SPAlertTemplateType.PictureLibrary Notification of changes in picture libraries
