I was able to get the FBA Pack to work, however I am still having trouble with email notifications and permissions.
1) When I create a new user with an external email address they do not receive an email notification, despite "Send welcome e-mail to new user" being checked. I have configured a transport rule on our Exchange server and configured SMTP settings in
IIS. Emails for accounts in our AD and internal network are working fine. Not sure what I may be missing. Any ideas? Are there logs I can refer to for this?
2) When I create a new user with FBA user management and attempt to login with those credentials they must first request access to the site before I can add them to any of the sharepoint groups (Members, Owners, Visitors). Is there a way to add the FBA users
to a permissions group without having to request access first? Our intention is to create several users and give them permissions to their appropriate sites without anyone ever having to request access.
