i've seen there's a few threads about database mail, here, but none seem to apply to me.
I've changed a couple of system Passwords and have gone through the process of ensuring that all our processes work.
all but the database mail are, but now i'm stuck.
the passwords that have changed are for SA (not sure if database mail is using this account)
and a windows account (its more than likely using this one).
from SSMS, i right clicked the Database Mail node from the Management folder and chose to send a Test EMail but nothing has come through.
I've also viewed the Database Mail Log and there are lots of errors stating:
the mail could not be sent to the recipients because of the mail server failure... The server response was: Timeout
what i've done so far:
after changing the passwords, i logged onto the server and restarted the Sql Server Agent.
I've right clicked Database Mail from SSMS and selected Configure Database Mail.
I've then selected to 'Manage Database Mail accounts' and also 'Manage profile security' but neither sections explicitly mention a password that i wish it to connect with.
