You cannot create alerts for lists for which users can only read their own items

If you are trying to create an alert to a list and come across this error don´t be mad…


In fact, this is not an error but a design configuration. In those lists where you specify that users can only read or modify items created by their own is not allowed to create alerts… and it makes sense, if you are not allowed to view items from other people you shouldn´t be allowed to get to know when other people create or modifiy items in that list.

This configuration you can find it, from the Advanced Settings of the list:


So, don´t get crazy about the error and start re-configuring alerts or smtps…

Hope it helps!
