Also in addition to the links provided, here's a link to a more complete list of disabled features

The links for Database Mail and SQL Mail are the same.

I thought that Database Mail replaced SQL Mail?

That's true!

I guess these should have been used:

Database Mail: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms175887(SQL.90).aspx
SQL mail: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms177418(SQL.90).aspx

Database Mail is the newer, improved, more stable email solution version of SQL Mail, but you can still use SQL Mail if you really must!
Again those links above will tell you more

Ugh... yet another typically bad worded question. Technically there's a difference between a feature being disabled and not being setup.

Also noticed that these links take you to SQL 2008 pages (I guess the default links always refer to the latest version). You can follow the links at the top right of those pages for SQL2005, or use these modified links: put '(SQL.90)' before the '.aspx'

Database Mail - http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms175887(SQL.90).aspx
SQL mail: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms177418(SQL.90).aspx

I guess your issue is with SQL Mail?

Technically yes - but practically, none of these are enabled, so the end result is the same.

In fact MSDN/BOL regards them to be 'disabled' (MS words not mine)....http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms183753(SQL.90).aspx

True. But this article indicates it's not even installed by default: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms177418(SQL.90).aspx

You have to consider all platforms, this question does not.

The "correct" answer is not valid.

The official "Security note" from BOL is below:


Security Note:
SQL Mail is not installed by default in SQL Server 2005. For more information, see Surface Area Configuration. SQL Mail is not supported on 64-bit versions of SQL Server. SQL Mail stored procedures cannot be installed on 64-bit versions.


This feature is not just disabled, it isn't present. For those of us that know the difference, it's huge.

I think the QOD is just fine. The default for these features is disabled - whether they are installed or not is a different question. Just my opinion.
