When using "sp_send_dbmail", messages are queued through Service Broker. Other than the system views, "dbo.sysmail_...", in MSDB, is there another way to know if an email was sent successfully?
Also, in 2000 you did not need to supply the whole email address in order for xp_sendmail to work. For example, I could use my name, "RGioia" as the recipient and it would send email to rgioia@<my current domain>. Does anyone know of a work-around for this in 2005 or do you just have to ensure that full email addresses are used?
