I'm trying to setup Database Mail and send a test message, but it's not working.

I've done several step-by-steps and all and I can't get it to work. Also checked several posts in this forum but none helped. I think it used to work before (2 months ago) but we had to turn it off.

I've enabled it in Surface Configuration, have tried recreating all profiles, restarted SQL Agent, checked version mismatch...

I check the Database Mail and I get the following message:
