Can I send Email Alerts From SharePoint 2010 To Distribution Lists

Yes we can send Email alerts From SharePoint 2010 To Distribution Lists.

How ?

The answer is First you need to convert the DL into a security group for the DL to get resolved in Sharepoint . As Sharepoint doesnt recognise DL`s

After that is done .

1. Log in to your SharePoint site and navigate to Site Actions > Site Permissions

2. Add this distribution list to the site as a member of an existing SharePoint permission   
    group . you can give Read permissions no Higher permissions needed .

3. Navigate to Settings > Group Settings and make sure that the following is true

  • Who can view the membership of the group: Everyone.
  • Group permissions level: at least,Read permissions

  • 4.  Navigate to the library or list and click Library (List) > Tools > Set alert on this library (list)

    5.  Add the distribution list in the field Send alerts to

    The alerts now will be sent to the members of this distribution list.

    SharePoint 2010: Site Collection Administrator does not receive storage quota alerts

    To help manage site and server resources, an administrator of the local server computer can specify quotas that are used to limit the amount of storage available on a site and the number of users that are added to a site collection. These quotas help to ensure that one site cannot deplete so many resources that other sites can no longer function.

    The server administrator can use locks to stop sites from exceeding the storage quota limits, and to block all users from accessing a site if necessary.
    A user is a SharePoint Site Collection Administrator. The Site Collection reaches its quota, and has passed the warning limit. However, the user does not receive a warning email message. 

    Probable causes:
    This issue occurs because the warning email message only goes to the Site Owner.

    To resolve this issue, validate that the user is not the Site Owner. To do this, follow these steps: 
    1)      Log on to any server of the farm. 
    2)      Open Central Administration. 
    3)      Application Management, and then
    4)      Click View All Site Collections.  
    5)      Find the site in question.  
    6)   Notice the "Primary administrator." 

    The primary site collection administrator will be the user who receives quota alerts. If the customer has to change this, we can run the following cmdlet:

    stsadm -o siteOwner -url <Site Collection> -ownerLogin <Domain\Alias>

    If you have any queries/questions/doubts regarding the mentioned information then please let me know. I would be more than happy to help you as well as resolves your issues :)
