Incorrect TFS 2010 work item url from email

Filed under: TFS — Ravendra Mishra @ 4:15 pm

Recently I installed TFS 2010 (RC) and write my custom web service to send email based on various business rules. Email send by the service had incorrect URL and I got following error




Windows cannot find ‘:8090/wi.aspx’. Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again. To search for a file, click the Start button, and then click Search.





Later I realized that this issue is because I haven’t turned email alerting on. Once email is enabled and proper smtp server setting is configured from TFS Administrator console, url’s are automatically correct even for custom web service. Email can be configured as below.

Do following setting on TFS App server.


  1. Launch “Team foundation server administration console” from the TFS App server.
  2. Select Application Tier node
  3. Go to Email Alert settings group
  4. Click change Alert settings and specify correct settings


  1. Click ok
  2. Iisreset or recycle tfs specific application pool and job done.
