SharePoint 2013 – someone@example.com

If you are getting these errors or users are reporting this error when trying to get access to a site, this might be your problem. Each site collection can set its own email address for access requests, if you allow them. Here is how to fix it.

  1. Go to the top level site of any site collection. Click on Site permissions on the settings page.

  2. On the page that comes up, click on Access Request Settings.

  1. Change the default value to whatever email you want to receive the requests. Someone@example.com is the default. This is why you are getting the errors.

  1. I am a complete newbie to SPF 2013 and have been installing and configuring from scratch in my spare time for the last two week. Created my first site today and after inviting someone to the site, got a bounce that my email to someone@example.com could not be delivered. A quick Google search brought me to this blog entry. Just wanted to say thanks for posting it.

  2. Do you know if there is a way to globally change the default someone@example.com? That way any new site collections are automatically set up with an real email address. Is there a setting in Central Admin maybe?
