I am in an environment that does not have an SMTP Server. We are using SQL 2005 on Server 2003. Is there a way I can send emails without having an SMTP server. I need to send out results of jobs/plans and notifications.

Your help is appreciated


Jeff

you don't have to have a local smtp server; anyones mail server will do, including google, comcast or whoever you have an email account with.;

I've set up google gmail for db_mail and sql server as a proof of concept lots of times: the only tricky part was the alternate port where you might expect port 25 or 825, instead of 587 that google uses.:
