SharePoint 3.0 - Alert URL's Not Correct

A client has set up an intranet site using SharePoint 3.0 running on a Windows SBS 2003 Standard server.

The site can be accessed from the LAN via url http://intranet/default.aspx
And from the internet via url https://domain:444/default.aspx

Issue is that the links contained within alert messages generated by SharePoint are not correct and therefore do not allow the content relating to the alert to be viewed from within the email.

Suggestions please.

By default the alerts will use the Default zone url.  However, you can change this using the Admin Toolkit for WSS 3.

How are the urls displayed?  By default, Alerts will use the Default zone URL in their messages.

Look at the Alternate Access Mappings for your web application.  What is the URL for the Default Zone?

Justin SmithSr. System EngineerCommented:
so are alerts pointing to the 19698 site, but they should point to intranet?

The alerts are pointing to http://intranet which is not accessable from the internet.
