If I share a site the email is not being sent. This function does work with everything else like if you share a document or a list. This is happening for all users and all sites. The relays on the email servers are setup correctly.

  • This was not answered with the other solution due to the invitation email working for documents and lists. This is only occurring for if you share a site and it is happening on all site for all users. – Anthony Bush Sr Dec 11 '14 at 18:40
  • Ok after working with Microsoft we found what was causing the issue. I was using a codeplex project ldapcp.codeplex.com to resolve names through adfs. This was not showing the email address in the metadata. Once I updated it and added the mapping for email in the metadata then it started to work. Thank you everyone for you help. – Anthony Bush Sr Feb 16 '15 at 16:22

This old question might be the same problem/solution. The Share with email does not use the farm settings as it sends as the currently logged in user, e.g. Joe has shared a site with you. You might need to open up your relay(if using exchange) to allow this send as behavior.

"Share with" e-mail invitations not being sent even though all other e-mails work in On-Premise SP 2013

  • Ok I found my answer. After working with microsoft we determined it was a codeplex tool I am useing to resolve adfs entries in people search. I just need to update this code and add the email into the metadata. – Anthony Bush Sr Feb 16 '15 at 14:05
