Changes to the Alert Settings in TFS 2013

Small changes make a big difference. With TFS 2012 you had SMTP settings for alerts that contained the very essentials for sending out mail and look like this.image

This works fine until, people for some reason don’t get emails, now you will probably end up moving work items around to force sending of alerts as a test mechanism. With 2013 the whole alerts settings window has changed a lot and caters for more inputs for configuration. And the best part of it (for me at least) is that there is now a Send Test Email window.


Pretty neat and does exactly what it should Smile.
