Custom Email Alert Templates for individual lists

Over time my inbox fills with notes of things I want to blog about – even if just as notes for myself in the future. This was one that I’d forgotten about – you can set an email alert template for an individual list! Really, it’s setting up the Alert Template (in a copy of AlertTemplates.xml), setting that that file can be used for alerts (via STSADM), and then setting that alert template to be used through the object model.

You also get to run a CAML query on the list, and access to the before and after values for items, when filtering what things to send emails about.

It’s all in this very good article.
