Hiya,

In FSRM on a Windows 2008 R2 Server I have configured a quota template for a file share and applied it to a quota to alert at 70% and 90%

The test email goes fine to the Admin email address within Configure Options but when the quota is exceeded, FSRM cannot send email to users.  I get this error. I've attached 2 screenprints but can't see what the problem might be

Hiya,

I have fixed this now by doing the following.

1. Created an AD User account and added the email address into the email field of the properties of the AD account

2. In FSRM > Right click on File Server Resource Manager and select Configure Options > Default email settings > Default Administrator Recipients, make sure the same email address is in here. (In my case it already was but worth checking)

3. In FSRM > Quota Management > Quotas > Right click on your Quota and select Edit Quota Properties > Go to Notification thresholds and click Edit on whichever thresholds you have set up > Under Send email to the following administrators, make sure you have your email address in here as well.

This solution worked for us. I am still not sure why we needed to have the email address as part of an AD User object for it to work but I can't find any more information about this at the moment.

Other fixes also say don't leave a trailing semi colon if you add multiple addresses into the email fields in FSRM but this wasn't our problem but may help others if you come across this.
