SharePoint Tasks and Distribution Lists RRS feed

  • Question

  • When I assign a task to a person in SP the notification email gets sent to the person.

    BUT

    When I assign a task to a distribution list the notification email does not get sent to the people in the distribution lists. Does this not work?

  • Hi kjmcsd.net,

    You can create a SharePoint Designer workflow and use Send an email action. Send an email action is allowed to send emails to distribution list. If you want to try this way, please make sure Require that all senders are authenticated option is uncheck in Properties of that Distribution group > Mail Flow Setting tab > Message Delivery Restrictions in Exchange Management Console.

    Best regards,

  • Hi,

    Sharepoint 2007 be default is not enable to assign task to some people and send email to them, you can use object model (programming) to do this.
