SharePoint 2007

Updated: November 1, 2007

Applies To: Windows SharePoint Services 3.0

Deletes the site collection if use is not confirmed. This property is used in conjunction with the Dead-site-num-notifications property, which sets the number of notifications before the site is actually deleted.

This property is equivalent to the Automatically delete the site collection if use is not confirmed user interface setting that is located on the Site Use Confirmation and Deletion page of the SharePoint Central Administration Web site.


stsadm -o setproperty

   -propertyname delete-web-send-email

   -propertyvalue {Yes | No}

   [-url] <http://server_name>

The syntax for the getproperty operation is:

stsadm -o getproperty

   propertyname delete-web-send-email

   [-url] <http://server_name>


You can substitute -pn for -propertyname and -pv for -propertyvalue.
