E-mail actions are broken

Jun 13, 2008 at 8:09 PM
I'm trying to set up a workflow that sends an e-mail.  Right now I am using the standard e-mail action that comes with SPD.  The action gives an error stating that there is a problem with the user specified in the To: portion of the e-mail action.  I have removed everything from the e-mail so I know it is the Send To person causing the problem.  I don't know why though.

Has anyone else had this problem?  If so then is there a fix.

I had version 4 of the activities installed and then upgraded to version 5 a few months ago.  I guess I just haven't used the e-mail activity since then (it's a test system).

Thanks,

I thought I had this problem before but I couldn't find what the solution was.  Apparently I originally posted it here on this discussion board.  I can't seem to get it to work again after trying my own previous solution.

I decided to go ahead and install 0.5.0 on our production server in case the version difference between our test servers and production servers was causing the problem.  Now I get the error

A web configuration modification operation is already running.

on our production server and it will not allow me to activate the feature.  Sounds like I'm about to be in hot water!

I guess this was just my stupidity.  I didn't set a subject....
