Sharepoint 2010 – Outgoing mail configuration

Outgoing e-mail is the foundation on which site administrators can implement several useful e-mail notification features. These features help end users track changes and updates to individual site collections and enable site administrators to deliver status messages. After you configure outgoing e-mail, users can create alerts to track items in a site. If you want to configure outgoing e-mail for a specific Web application, you must first configure the default outgoing e-mail for all Web applications in the farm. If you configure the outgoing e-mail for a specific Web application, that configuration will override the default configuration for all Web applications in the farm. Before you can enable outgoing e-mail, you must determine which SMTP server to use. This SMTP server must be configured to allow anonymous SMTP e-mail submissions. The SMTP server can be a server in the farm or outside the farm.

To install the SMTP service

  1. Click Start, point to Administrative Tools, and then click Server Manager.
  2. In Server Manager, click Features.
  3. In Features Summary, click Add Features to open the Add Features Wizard.
  4. On the Select Features page, select SMTP Server.
  5. In the Add Features Wizard dialog box, click Add Required Features, and then click Next.
  6. On the Confirm Installation Selections page, click Install.
  7. On the Installation Results page, ensure that the installation is complete, and then click Close.

 SMTP service on Windows Server 2008, you must use Internet Information Services (IIS) 6.0 Manager… Make sure that you install IIS 6.0 Management tools in Server Manager

To configure the SMTP service

  1. Click Start, point to Administrative Tools, and then click Internet Information Services (IIS) 6.0 Manager.
  2. In IIS Manager, expand the server name that contains the SMTP server that you want to configure.
  3. Right-click the SMTP virtual server that you want to configure, and then click Start.
  4. Right-click the SMTP virtual server that you want to configure, and then click Properties.
  5. On the Access tab, in the Access control area, click Authentication.
  6. In the Authentication dialog box, verify that Anonymous access is selected.
  7. Click OK.
  8. On the Access tab, in the Relay restrictions area, click Relay.
  9. To enable relayed e-mail messages from any server, click All except the list below.
  10. To accept relayed e-mail messages from one or more specific servers, follow these steps:
    1. Click Only the list below.
    2. Click Add, and then add servers one at a time by IP address, or in groups by using a subnet or domain.
    3. Click OK to close the Computer dialog box.
    4. Click OK to close the Relay Restrictions dialog box.
  11. Click OK to close the Properties dialog box

and make sure that on the service…Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP)…set to automatic.

To configure outgoing e-mail for a farm by using Central Administration

  1. In Central Administration, click System Settings.
  2. On the System Settings page, in the E-Mail and Text Messages (SMS) section, click Configure outgoing e-mail settings.
  3. On the Outgoing E-Mail Settings page, in the Mail Settings section, type the SMTP server name for outgoing e-mail (for example, mail.company.com) in the Outbound SMTP server box.
  4. In the From address box, type the e-mail address as you want it to be displayed to e-mail recipients.
  5. In the Reply-to address box, type the e-mail address to which you want e-mail recipients to reply.
  6. In the Character set list, select the character set that is appropriate for your language.
  7. Click OK.

To configure outgoing e-mail for a specific Web application by using Central Administration

  1. In Central Administration, in the Application Management section, click Manage web applications.
  2. On the Web Applications Management page, select a Web application, and then in the General Settings group on the Ribbon, click Outgoing E-mail.
  3. On the Web Application Outgoing E-Mail Settings page, in the Mail Settings section, type the SMTP server name for outgoing e-mail (for example, mail.fabrikam.com) in the Outbound SMTP server box.
  4. In the From address box, type the e-mail address (for example, the site administrator alias) as you want it to be displayed to e-mail recipients.
  5. In the Reply-to address box, type the e-mail address (for example, a help desk alias) to which you want e-mail recipients to reply.
  6. In the Character set list, click the character set that is appropriate for your language.
  7. Click OK.

Once you finish all these…please note that Sharepoint 2010 has a tight integration towards Exchange Server.. If you have an in-house server for mail, on the edge server, you should create a Send connector for the SPS server as an SMTP.

Thats all…

SharePoint 2010 – How to change welcome e-mail content..!!!

Content….

What is a SharePoint site?

A SharePoint site is a Web site that provides a central storage and collaboration space for documents, information, and ideas. A SharePoint site is a tool for collaboration, just like a telephone is a tool for communication, or a meeting is a tool for decision making. A SharePoint site helps groups of people (whether work teams or social groups) share information and work together. For example, a SharePoint site can help you:

* Coordinate projects, calendars, and schedules.
* Discuss ideas and review documents or proposals.
* Share information and keep in touch with other people.

…… End content

When you create a user this mail will come to the user inbox…if you want to customize it…you have to log on to Sharepoint server as administrator…

Locate  C:\program files\common files\Microsoft shared\web server extensions\14\Resources\

File name : core.en-US

Open this file in notepad and edit or add it…

Warning : When you edit, you should know what you are editing..its at your own risk…because these files are script based XML files…

Once you done, save and restart the server…cache needs to update…

Enjoy

SharePoint 2010 installed on Windows Server 2008 R2 – Event ID 10016 – Resolution

The application-specific permission settings do not grant Local Activation permission for the COM Server application with CLSID {61738644-F196-11D0-9953-00C04FD919C1} to the user TESTSPS\svc-sharepoint-dev SID (S-1-5-21-3914637029-2275272621-3670275343-1145) from address LocalHost (Using LRPC). This security permission can be modified using the Component Services administrative tool.

A typical error…uhhh

To rectify this error…first you need to do this on the SPS server..Windows Server 2008 R2, you must first take ownership of the corresponding registry key and grant Administrators permissions to update the configuration. If you do not take the ownership and try to add the user, pop-up window will appear and will say “ACCESS IS DENIED”

To grand  permission to the  configuration of the IIS WAMREG Admin Service to be changed using the Component Services console:

  1. Click the Start menu, type regedit, and then click regedit.exe.  If prompted by User Account Control to allow the program to make changes to this computer, click Yes.
  2. In the Registry Editor window, search for “61738644-F196-11D0-9953-00C04FD919C1” to find HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\AppID\{61738644-F196-11D0-9953-00C04FD919C1}.
  3. Right-click on the HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\AppID\{61738644-F196-11D0-9953-00C04FD919C1} key and then click Permissions.
  4. In the Permissions for {61738644-F196-11D0-9953-00C04FD919C1} dialog box, click Advanced.
  5. In the Advanced Security Settings for {61738644-F196-11D0-9953-00C04FD919C1} dialog box:
    1. Click the Owner tab.
    2. In the Change owner to list, click the Administrators group.
    3. Click OK.
  6. In the Permissions for {61738644-F196-11D0-9953-00C04FD919C1} dialog box, click the Administrators group, then click the checkbox to allow the group Full Control, and click OK.
  7. Close the Registry Editor window.

Now you have granded the Administrators group to sufficient permissions, now how to change the IIS WAMREG Admin Service. If you don’t do the previous step and go directly to the component service, all the fields are disabled.

Next step is refered in the KB article KB920783 from Microsoft…which is as follows on your SPS server….

  • Click Start, click Run, type dcomcnfg in the Open box, and then click OK.
  • Expand Component Services, expand Computers, expand My Computer, and then click DCOM Config.
  • Right-click IIS WAMREG admin Service, and then click Properties.
  • Click the Security tab.
  • Under Launch and Activation Permissions, click Edit.
  • In the Launch Permission dialog box, click Add.
  • In the Select Users, Computers, or Groups dialog box, change the location to the local server. Then, type the local security group WSS_WPG, click Check Names, and then click OK.
  • In the Permissions for UserName list, click to select the Allow check box that is next to Local Activation, and then click OK
  • Hope this will help you
