SharePoint workflow – duplicate emails sent and suspended workflow


I came accross a case in which the workflow should send an email notification to a SharePoint group and continue doing other stuff.

The problem is that the workflow sent the same notification 10 or more times and then the whole workflow get suspended with the error:

RequestorId: cc9d6fb4-dbf3-69a2-0000-000000000000. Details: An unhandled exception occurred during the execution of the workflow instance. Exception details: System.ApplicationException: HTTP 500 {“Transfer-Encoding”:[“chunked”],”X-SharePointHealthScore”:[“0″],”SPClientServiceRequestDuration”:[“5653″],”SPRequestGuid”:[“cc9d6fb4-dbf3-69a2-be79-a2438114b8f6″],”request-id”:[“cc9d6fb4-dbf3-69a2-be79-a2438114b8f6″],”X-FRAME-OPTIONS”:[“SAMEORIGIN”],”MicrosoftSharePointTeamServices”:[“″],”X-Content-Type-Options”:[“nosniff”],”X-MS-InvokeApp”:[“1; RequireReadOnly”],”Cache-Control”:[“max-age=0, private”],”Date”:[“Wed, 08 Jun 2016 11:31:34 GMT”],”Set-Cookie”:[“NSC_tqtjuft.bsbnfy.ofu_iuuqt_jou=ffffffff09131f5945525d5f4f58455e445a4a423660;Version=1;Max-Age=1800;path=\/;secure;httponly”],”Server”:[“Microsoft-IIS\/7.5″],”X-AspNet-Version”:[“4.0.30319″],”X-Powered-By”:[“ASP.NET”]} at Microsoft.Activities.Hosting.Runtime.Subroutine.SubroutineChild.Execute(CodeActivityContext context) at System.Activities.CodeActivity.InternalExecute(ActivityInstance instance, ActivityExecutor executor, BookmarkManager bookmarkManager) at System.Activities.Runtime.ActivityExecutor.ExecuteActivityWorkItem.ExecuteBody(ActivityExecutor executor, BookmarkManager bookmarkManager, Location resultLocation)


It turns out that one of the users in the SharePoint group is disabled and resigned which casues the SharePoint to behave like this
