My sql agent mail suddenly stops working. The mails are usually going to the people. But once in a while I have this wierd problem of mails not reaching the recipients. Happens once in 2-3 weeks, starts working fine if I restart the server. When I open the Outlook client, the outbox is also empty, but still the mails are not gone.
If I Test the mail profile in the sql agent properties, it gives time out error. Everything becomes okay if I restart the server.
OS: Win 2K sp4
Server : SQL 2000 SP3
Account : Verified that the account is in Administrator Group
There is only one MAPI32.DLL file and is in system32 folder.
The wierd part is everything works if I restart..any help would be much appreciated.
