Configuring intranet alerts

An alert is an e-mail notification that users receive when changes are made to documents, document libraries, and lists or when items are added or removed. Users can define this notification schedule.

The notification service is enabled by default, and the name of the e-mail server is the same as the computer running Microsoft® Windows® Small Business Server 2003. Users receive the alerts they configure, but the From and Reply to fields do not contain a recognizable address and might be confusing. By default, the From field is set to the Windows Small Business Server NetBIOS name, and the Reply-to address is blank. Unless a valid Reply-to address is entered, a user replying to an alert e-mail receives a non-delivery report (NDR) message.

In both the From and the Reply-to fields, consider entering the e-mail address of the person administering the intranet or another recognizable address.

Note

  • The From and Reply-to fields must contain full SMTP addresses.
