Alerts in MOSS 2007 not working
I have have MOSS 2007 on Windows 2008 and alerts are not working. MOSS is at version 18.104.22.16819 (SP1 installed) and the server has been fully patched (including .Net 3.5 being installed). This is a preexisting site that I just came into. I've tried the various fixes (stsadm) as listed in the following:http://www.thesug.org/blogs/benm/Lists/Posts/Post.aspx?ID=1http://glorix.blogspot.com/2007/10/alerts-not-working-all-time.htmlhttp://www.thesug.org/blogs/benm/Lists/Posts/Post.aspx?ID=1I've also restarted the Sharepoint timer service.Reboots used to clear the issue, but now, that doesn't seem to work. Any help would be appreciated.

Have you checked the logs and event viewer? I would also check the Timer Job Status screen in CA to see if there are any failed jobs. Then for the best one... are the Outgoing Mail settings still good?SharePoint Developer | Administrator | Evangelist -- Twitter -- Blog - http://nextconnect.blogspot.com

Hi Mike, Thanks for the reply. I've checked the event log and noticed that the timer service errored out. I did some digging and found this link.http://sharepoint.microsoft.com/blogs/fromthefield/Lists/Posts/Post.aspx?List=0ce77946%2D1e45%2D4b43%2D8c74%2D21963e64d4e1&ID=14I've since restarted the service and the Timer Job Status looks good. There are no failures in Central Administration Timer StatusI believe the the Outgoing mail settings are good. I can resolve the DNS name of the mail server from the sharepoint server. I did notice, however,that no email from the sharepoint server is making it to the email server. Do you have any specific settings I should check?

To check outgoing email settings I typically just setup an alert on something which sends the confirmation immediately, not using the timer job. When you say that no email is making it to the email server, what are you looking for?SharePoint Developer | Administrator | Evangelist -- Twitter -- Blog - http://nextconnect.blogspot.com
