sql mail is not notifying me when a job fails. Anyone know how to troubleshoot it?
Looks like the mail icon in control panel is missing. could that be the problem? How do you get it back?

You need the outlook client with a profile set up that can actually send and receive mail. Is that set up at this point? Sounds like you might need to start there...

Your lack of planning does not constitute an emergency on my part...unless you're my manager...or a director and above...or a really loud-spoken end-user..All right - what was my emergency again?

I'd highly recommend staying away from SQLMail in SQL2000 ... it's a nightmare.

Instead, there is an easy solution ... upgrade to 2005 and use database mail! Smile If that's possible, use cdosysmail: http://www.sqlteam.com/forums/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=50879

I used SQL Mail at my last employer. We had to install Outlook on the server and setup a mail profile. For the most part, it was reliable. we did have a few occasions where we had to restart SQL because mail hung, but that was fairly infrequent.

If you can upgrade to SQL Server 2005, using Database Mail is much easier.

Yes, you may want to look at upgrading from SQL Server 2000 to SQL Server 2005 (maybe even SQL Server 2008 as it comes out this year).

Standard suport for SQL Server 2000 ends (I believe) in March or April of this year. After that, all you will get (unless you are paying for support) are security hot fixes.

Hello,

Is "ibrowse" the domain name??

If it is a domain name then it will be present in your Active Directory (machine) database. Normally, system admins set such type of service accounts without password expiration so it overrides the default policy of changing the password for every 30 days.

Hope this helps.

Thanks

Lucky,
I think you are wrong when you say this account doesn't use password. Well I went to services deleted the password and tried to start the service. But it didnt as it's telling me logon failure.
