SMTP mail server registration to TFS RRS feed

  • Question

  • I installed TFS Beta 3 on our Team Foundation Server.

    I'm able to successfully send outgoing E-mail via OutLook Express from same TFS server and receive on my PC Email.

    I set the Project Alerts on the Team Project of Team Explorer checking all four

    boxes - but specifically - A build completes AND A build status changes.

    I make sure that the Send To's are in correct format - userid@domain and

    separated by semicolons{;}. When I click OK on Project Alerts - the form data

    is accepted.

    I start a build{buildType} under same Team Project which completes successfully.

    None of the Send To's get notification of the build completion.


    Is there a way to register our SMTP server to TFS post-install???


    If I have to re-install TFS, where exactly to I specify the SMTP server to TFS install???


    Does TFS re-use the existing SMTP registration that already exists for OutLook

    Express(which works perfectly) or does TFS keep it own registry which in my case

    is missing SMTP server???
