I am setting up SQL Agent Operator to be used for Job notification when the job fails. The only problem I've encountered was that when the Operator was setup, I could not get the email notifications to come through. Eventually, I resolved it by restarting the SQL Agent Service. The problem is that I can't really do something like this in the production, because of continually running jobs, and scheduling maintenance is going to be pretty difficult. Is there some other way I can resolve this issue, aside from restarting the SQL Agent Service?
