Create the alerts while logged in the application using the Internet URL. Most likely you created the alerts using the internal URL and that’s why the email are showing the internal URL.If you have already created your alerts you can updated them using the PowerShell command:

Invoke-AlertFixup -site <NewURL> -oldurl <OldURL>

Here is simple PowerShell script that can create new accounts and setup unique passwords in Active Directory.

First Step is to create a csv file and specify rows for new accounts For e.g.


Second Step is to the script below using PowerShell


$dataSource=import-csv “test.csv” //This is the name of the csv file

foreach($dataRecord in $datasource) {

$cn=$dataRecord.FirstName + ” ” + $dataRecord.LastName
$displayName=$sn + “, ” + $givenName
$Password = $dataRecord.Password
$userPrincipalName=$sAMAccountName + “”


Last Step is to verify in Active Directory that the accounts are created.
