I am trying to figure out why SharePoint does not send notifications every once in a while. I seem to find myself restarting the "Windows SharePoint Services Timer" on the server and then all of a sudden the notifications work.
I can't check the logs because it only keeps the last 10 minutes and usually the problem is discovered out of the blue.
When I go to Central Administrations > Operations > Timer job status - the "Immediate Alerts" job status was "Initalizing." After restarting the service it was changed to Succeeded. Is this a known bug in SP?
