Disable Email Alerts at WebApplication Level In SharePoint 2013

Disable Email Alerts at WebApplication Level In SharePoint 2013.

In one of my recent technical panel discussion on SharePoint 2013, there comes a interesting question from an enthustiastic chap on disabling email alert at web application level. So we found a way out to do this at the web application level.
  1. $weburl= Get-SPWebApplication "http://msyite/"  
  2. $weburl.AlertsEnabled = $false  
  3. $weburl.Update()  
In a similar way, we can enable the alerts at the web application level.
  1. $weburl= Get-SPWebApplication "http://mysite/"  
  2. $weburl.AlertsEnabled = $True  
  3. $weburl.Update() 
Happy SharePointing :-)
