Bamboo has a solution for group email. http://store.bamboosolutions.com/p-40-group-email-web-part.aspx There are a few others out there as well. You can do this on your own with a couple of lists. Use one to capture user information, and the other to store your items to send. Create a workflow that uses the email addresses of the first list to send out ...

This technically is possible, however you would be editing the resource files installed by SharePoint. Doing this is NOT supported by Microsoft, could break things, and could get overwritten during future updates. If you are feeling adventurous in a test environment, however, the location of the resource files is here: C:\Program Files\Common ...

If email body is generic, use two sections in your email. For example, the "Hello, [%User%]" could be in string in send email function and the rest of the email template while the rest of the template is a lookup. Your description does not tell if you need dynamic string in the email body. Though not pretty, you could use the same methodology to build a ...

This falls under customising alert templates in which there are many blogs and posts on the subject.

Check the DB to make sure your edits make it into the DB: Powershell: $contentService = [Microsoft.SharePoint.Administration.SPWebService]::ContentService $AlertsTemplateCollection = new-object Microsoft.SharePoint.SPAlertTemplateCollection($contentService) $DB = $AlertsTemplateCollection["SPAlertTemplateType.DiscussionBoard"] $DB.xml ...

So, here is the solution which customizes the Email text (Subject and the Message) sent to users on granting permssions to various sites. Normally, it is not possible without modifying SharePoint OOTB files. But my solution works without having to modify any OOTB box SharePoint files. How it works: In SharePoint 2010, Permissions are granted using the ...

I am working on the same topic. Is not possible to change the email body for e.g. "Welcome to the group email": "Welcome to the 'BLABLA' SharePoint group. BLABLA has added you to the 'BLABLA' group for this SharePoint site. As a member of this SharePoint group, you can: * Participate in the SharePoint site at: ................. * View the group home page ...

Yes, there is a way, but it is NOT recommended. You should never edit any of the default files installed by SharePoint. They can be overwritten any time by a service pack or cumulative update. SharePoint stores most of the text strings it uses in its UI in resx files. These resx files are located in the 12 hive under /Resources. To find out where exactly, ...

It seems there is NO supported way of modifying text/format of email that goes out when a colleague is added. The text/format is hard coded in a private method (Microsoft.Office.Server.UserProfiles.ColleagueManager class) in an assembly that ships with SharePoint. The list of email templates which you can customize is: ...

While I'm not 100% certain, I suspect that your problem is that you are using a SharePoint-specific method to access a file that is not actually in SharePoint. Everything in /_layouts/ is actually in the underlying file system of the server. What might work better on a lot of fronts is to move your templates into Sharepoint, either in their own document ...

This sounds like a profile -> site user info list sync issue. User's not in the site already are not known "completely", i.e. users will be validated based on their user name, but SharePoint won't have their display name available yet (both in the user info list and the user profile service application). These properties get synced to sharepoint at the ...

You can Create customtemplate for each type of library and can customize no of fields to be include/exclude. Good example to go with CustomAlertTemplate.

It's hard to know exactly how to answer based on the small amount of detail you have provided, but would a SharePoint Designer workflow serve the purpose? With that, you can set the text to whatever you'd like as well as include column values.
