SQL 2005 Database Mail Question

    Is it possible to have Database Mail work with a 64-bit SQL 2005 cluster environment?  I keep getting the error message below when trying to send an email message.  I am not sure where to look to fix this.  Any suggestions?  We are running version 9.00.2153.00.

    Thank you in advance for any advice!

    I'm not sure what is your problem, but I can confirm that Database mail works on x64 clustered environment.

    To check everything you can do the following:

    1. run sp_configure to see if DatabaseMail XPs are enabled

    2. In SSMS under management check your profile and account settings

    3. Check the Database mail log

    If you want to use Database mail for SQL Agent notifications, check the properties and after making any changes to your profile, you need to restart SQL Agent.

    Hope this helps
