Posted in Issues/Troubleshooting by belle on September 25, 2008

If you have configured Database Mail, and SQL Server still isn’t able to send emails out, here are a few things to check/do:

  1. Enable TCP/IP
    • Start > SQL Server Surface Area Configuration > Surface Area Configuration for Services and Connections
  2. Enable Mail Profile
    • Right click on SQL Server Agent > Properties > Alert System > Enable Mail  Profile
  3. Restart SQL Server Agent
