SharePoint 2016

“Software innovation, like almost every other kind of innovation, requires the ability to collaborate and share ideas with other people, and to sit down and talk with customers and get their feedback and understand their needs.” —Bill Gates

Problem:

Outgoing emails are not sending from one particular site, "immediate alerts" timer job stuck on some specific database, owstimer.exe consumes high memory on one SharePoint server.

And if you try to assign properties to OneNote document - you just can't.

I haven't seen any clear instructions from Microsoft on the subject. And here we have an “unsupported” workarounds. Actually, there are two: “Change Content Type” way and “Quick Edit View” way.
