There is a lot of very useful information from Microsoft but SharePoint Alerts are counter-intuitive on a lot of levels. The number one rule when dealing with them is to never assume that they follow a predictable pattern because they do not and will surprise you every time. They also love to work perfectly for 100 days straight, then for no discernible ...

Couple of things to check: Make sure "Microsoft SharePoint Foundation Incoming E-Mail" timer job is running on the server where SMTP confgiured. From Central admin, Incoming email setting > advance setting, make sure drop folder path added here. Make sure Timer Services having the correct permission on drop folder.

The outbound SMTP server should be the domain that the SMTP server is whenever you open the IIS 6.0 Manager -> SMTP Server -> Domains -> Domain Name. In the picture below, the SMTP server would be zjsptest.zjsptest.com

On a multi-server farm, be sure the "Microsoft SharePoint Foundation Incoming E-Mail" service is running on the same server you're using for the SMTP service, presumably one of your front end servers. Check this in Central Admin-System Settings-Manage Services on Server and cycle through your servers on the top-right. In my case the above mentioned service ...

I had same problem, after all I changed in Configure Incoming E-Mail Settings->Settings mode to -> ADVANCED and specified E-mail drop folder Path :c:\inetpub\mailroot\drop. I hope this answer will help somebody :) .

The guide mentions there being a delay between sending your email and seeing the document show up. I assume it is a timer job that performs the email pickup tasks. Is the SharePoint timer service running? It is called SharePoint 2010 Timer If the service IS running, are you able to see your job running in central admin? No jobs should be running right now ...

The timer job that picks up mail runs about every 5 minutes or so, so you should not see the email sit there for long. If it does just sit there, and the Timer service is running, then the problem may be that SharePoint does not recognize the TO address as an email-enabled document library. Make sure that you have configured the incoming email domain to ...

This seems kinda "dirty" but it works. http://www.delphi-ts.com/blogs/lozzi/post/2011/02/09/Sending-SharePoint-emails-through-alternate-ports.aspx Basically setting up a proxy for sending mail, pointing SharePoint to the proxy (standard port), and allowing the proxy to relay to the correct destination port.

If nothing above has helped, then I would check whether your application pool and timer service accounts have permissions to the drop folder. Probably they don't. Some time ago it was the cause of the issue in my case. To configure this permissions do the following: Verify that you have the following administrative credentials: You must be a member of ...

If you have more than one APP Server, check whether the drop folder is on the same server where the timer is running, else you have to share the folder and add the path in Central Admin.

You need to define a mail server in your farm. For example WFE. Once this is decided you need to create an Alias in SMTP. IIS->SMTP->Right Click Domains->Select New Domain->Set Domain Type = Alias and provide the server name Detailed steps

MSG files are a proprietary format only recognized by Microsoft Outlook. The only format the Windows SMTP service understands are EML files. UPDATE You just can't save an Outlook MSG file directly into SharePoint or Windows SMTP Server. You need either an Exchange Server or any other SMTP/POP/IMAP server Outlook can communicate with. I personally use the ...

Judging from the link you reported, the Save method calls a FileStream object. Being a stream, the FileStream can be replaced by a MemoryStream. // Create MemoryStream object MemoryStream stream = new MemoryStream(); // Get reflection info for MailWriter contructor // [omitted for brevity] // Construct MailWriter object with our MemoryStream object ...

You only need to set it up on one of your servers Yes each document library will have a different email address Will be the account that the Sharepoint Timer job service is running as, as this is what processes the emails coming in and then saves them to the library

Make sure you increase the logging options so you are capturing all the data with SNMP. A quick check is to telnet into your SMTP server and send a message directly to the GMAIL address and see if it is received. If you do this from Win7/8, 2008/2012 box you may need to install the telnet client first. telnet SERVERNAME 25 helo mail ...

You need to have SMTP server installed on the dev box so that it can receive email from the Lotus Notes box. Also, Lotus Notes box needs to know where to send the mail. So if you have developer@mydevbox.com as the recipient URL, that mydevbox.com needs to resolve to your dev box. I haven't tried this myself, but you might be able to just use HOSTS file on ...

Salve! I wanted to set up email too, for my Sharepoint. In my configuration, I used hMailServer. I realize you didn't mention hMailServer in your post, but I want to use it as an example because it represents a third-party mail server that is not Exchange, and has nothing (as you wished) to do with Active Directory. I am going to assume you have followed ...

There is a bug where, under certain conditions (usually related to 2007-2010 upgrade or when a server name changes) a list will become 'stuck' where it cannot receive email. The fix is fortunately extremely simple and painless : Go to the list properties and select 'Incoming Email Settings' Copy the current email address to someplace else, like Notepad++ ...

SMTP server that accept mail from the Internet must allow anonymous access.

"What is strange is that the newsletter is still being received by one recipient, who is using an email address with our company domain." Are some of the email addresses outside your domain? SMTP Servers can have different rules for what they will do with internal and external addresses. I would start by using an SMTP Test tool (you can also use ...

You need to make sure you correctly configured Incoming Email in SharePoint. On one of your WFE you need to configure SMTP. POP3 is not needed as the WFE serves as relay mainly.

Check if there're an X-Sender and X-Receiver headers in your emails - they are required. These headers is automatically added if you use the SMTP service in Windows. Anyway there must be a error in the SharePoint log regarding your emails - what does it say?
