Missing AlertEmail Template


I don't get any error mail from the distribution service if any task fails.

I get the following error message: "MailTemplate not found. eMailTemplateType=Alert"

The files AlertEmail.xml and MailTemplate.xml exists and are located in the QVPR-directory.

Any ideas?

Best regards,

The MailTemplate.xml and the AlertEmail.xml are in my \QVPR folder.

What's wrong?

Thanks for help.

Got it to work with copying a backup file from the MailTemplate.xml in the folder and deleted the "broken" one.

The only thing you have to check is the DistribubtionID. It should be the same in the MailTemplate.xml and (i.e) in the AlertMail.xml.
