We have a SharePoint 2010 production site in which number of documents are uploaded by different users having different custom permissions like author , approver , Admin . Usually Users with author permissions uploads a document to the library and creates an approval workflow on the uploaded document . Approval mail will be send to approver permission people and the process continues .
Last week we were facing some issues regarding those workflows so we cloned the production site on per-production environment .
Some of the authors terminated the workflows on production site but approvers are still getting workflow approval mails . Is there any chances that the approvers are getting the mails due to same workflows running on the per-production site which are not terminated ?
