SiteURL Issue

I'm wondering if there is a way that we can change the siteURL as it is displayed in the emails. We have both a windows auth AAM and an ExCM AAM that can be used to get into our site. What I have found is that if our internal administrators Invite Users from their normal site then the windows auth AAM is displayed in the link to our external visitors, which of course they are unable to use. In order to get around this, we have to have all of our admins create an external login, add that login to the Site Collection Administrators, and then log in from the external site and invite users that way. It would be a whole lot easier if I could force the ExCM AAM to always be the link.

 As always, thanks.

    Thanks Jeremy, but I have one more issue with this. I changed the email definition, but the RegisterURL doesn't appear to be able to be changed. Since we are using Invitation only, the invitation ID comes across in the RegistrationURL link. When I manually change, I can't get just the invitationID out of the full registrationURL, or can I?

    Did you change the Registration URL on the Delegation Settings page? Again, this can be done from Site Actions -> Delegation Settings -> Modify All Delegation Settings -> Delegation Settings -> Navigation Settings Section. You will need to fully qualify the Registration URL to the full path of your extranet site. If should be changed from...

    _layouts/SPSolutions/Delegation/Register.aspx

    to

    http://{domain_name}/_layouts/SPSolutions/Delegation/Register.aspx

    I changed the Registration URL, and I get the URL, but here is the issue. What I did was roll this out to a site within my site collection. Essentially I have ExCM working for my home page, and then I decided I wanted a user to be able invite to his specific site to keep users from accessing the main page prior to navigating down to the page we want them to see. I activated the delegation settings for that site, and set all of the settings to match the front page of the site collection. The links get to the registration page as they are supposed to, but I cannot redirect the invitation logs from the main page of the site collection to the logs located on the internal site. Therefore, when a person clicks the registration link, and then clicks the link to register, they receive an error stating, "Uninvited registrations are not allowed at this time. "

     Does that make any sense? Any thoughts?

    An invitation is valid from the top most site which defines the permission (permission root) and has the ExCM features installed. Any site inheriting permission will use the permission root site as the invitation base. If you would like to send a unique invitation from a sub-site you need to break permission inheritance, activate the Delegation Web Site Collection Feature and the Delegation Components and Membership Delegation Template Site Features. Finally, you will have to enable anonymous access, typically Lists and Libraries, at your sub site. Setup your Delegation and Registration Settings and you are ready to send invitation from the sub-site.

    This can be accomplished using one or a combination of the following methods. First, you can modify the registration URL from a relative path to the fully qualified path to the extranet registration page. This can be done from the target registration site at Site Actions -> Delegation Settings -> Modify All Delegation Settings -> Delegation Settings -> Navigation Settings section. Second, you can modify the e-mail definition to include any path you like. This can be done from the target registration site at Site Actions -> Delegation Settings -> Modify All Delegation Settings -> Delegation Mail Definitions.
