SharePoint 2010 – Email Alerts to Site Administrators

We are in the final stages of preparation for the long-overdue upgrade to SharePoint 2010.  I have set up a preview site with a copy of the production SharePoint content database, and I want to notify all site owners that they should check out their sites for major problems.  How to do?  PowerShell?  Absolutely!


Set-PSDebug -Strict
Add-PSSnapin -Name microsoft.SharePoint.PowerShell

[string] $waUrl = "https://sharepoint2010.uvm.edu"
[string] $SmtpServer = "smtp.uvm.edu"
[string] $From = "saa-ad@uvm.edu"

$allAdmins = @()

[string] $subjTemplate = 'Pending Upgrade for your site -siteURL-'
[string] $bodyTemplate = @"
Message Body Goes Here.
Use the string -siteURL- in the body where you want the user's site address to appear.
"@

$wa = Get-SPWebApplication -Identity $waUrl

foreach ($site in $wa.sites) {
	#Write-Host "Working with site: " + $site.url
	$siteAdmins = @()
	$siteAdmins = $site.RootWeb.SiteAdministrators
	ForEach ($admin in $siteAdmins) {
		#Write-Host "Adding Admin: " + $admin.UserLogin
		[string]$a = $($admin.UserLogin).Replace("CAMPUS\","")
		[string]$a = $a.replace(".adm","")
		[string]$a = $a.replace("-admin","")
		[string]$a = $a.replace("admin-","")
		if ($a -notmatch "sa_|\\system") { $allAdmins += , @($a; [string]$site.Url) }
	}
	$site.Dispose()
}

$allAdmins = $allAdmins | Sort-Object -Unique
#$allAdmins = $allAdmins | ? {$_[0] -match "jgm"} | Select-Object -Last 4

foreach ($admin in $allAdmins) {
	[string] $to = $admin[0] + "@uvm.edu"
	[string] $siteUrl = $admin[1]
	[string] $subj = $subjTemplate.Replace("-siteURL-",$siteUrl)
	[string] $body = $bodyTemplate.Replace("-siteURL-",$siteUrl)
	Send-MailMessage -To $to -From $From -SmtpServer $SmtpServer -Subject $subj -BodyAsHtml $body
}
