Just a follow up on enabling database mail.
On a new installation of SQL 2012, we clicked on the Database Mail icon under the Management folder in SSMS to start the wizard.
Because Database Mail was not enable, a pop up box asked "The Database Mail feature is not available. Would you like to enable to enable the feature?", with yes & no boxes.
In a query window, we ran sp_configure to see that the database mail had a zero value.
We then click yes on the pop-up box, and it disappeared.
We ran sp_configure again to see that the database mail now had a one value.
We then canceled out of the Database mail wizard, and ran sp_configure again to see that the database mail still had a one value.
So there is a way to enable database mail, with out typing out the stored procedure.
Thanks again to everyone!
