Disable colleague and keyword suggestions


  • Hello all,

    Is there a simple way to globally disable the emails that SharePoint sends out with colleague and keyboard suggestions? I've seen articles about using group policy or manually changing the scan via Outlook, but is there an option in SharePoint that can be disabled? I haven't seen anything that seems obvious.

  • Hello Aaron,


    Please try to modify the following Group Policy setting registry key. For details, please see:



    Values = DWORD 0 to turn it off and 1 to turn it on.



    Thanks & Regards.

  • That is something that requires a GPO and is toggled on/off on client computers, isn't it? I don't see that setting server-side. I was hoping for some simple server-side way of turning this off instead of having to use group policy.

  • To update this, I must have overlooked the timer jobs. I disabled the My Job Suggestions Email timer job and that seems like it would solve my question.
