How to configure a mail profile (Windows)
SQL Server 2000
To configure a mail profile
- Log on to the Microsoft® Windows NT® 4.0 or Microsoft Windows® 2000 server by specifying the name and password used to start Microsoft SQL Server™ services.
- In Control Panel, double-click the Mail icon to create and configure or copy an existing mail profile. Select the appropriate mail service to interact with your mail host. Choose a name for the profile that will help the recipient identify the messages.
- On the instance of SQL Server, start the mail client using the newly created mail profile.
- Send a message addressed to the same profile name to ensure that the mail client, mail profile, and e-mail provider are working properly.
If your e-mail message does not appear, you may need to establish mail synchronization by going to the Tools menu and then clicking Deliver Now.
