    Unanswered: SQL Server Event Email Notification??

    I am trying to set up the email notification system in SQL server 2000, but im having some problems. Mainly, im having problems with setting up an email account in the first place (there is a dedicated mail box, but the one im working with is a different box altogether).

    If anyone could help fathom this out from start to finish i would be really grateful.

    Here are several articles from MS on configuring SQL Mail. Probably the best one (from a step by step perspective) is the third one. Note that there are some issues with SQL Mail (which I hope get addressed in 2005!). Just be warned!
