    I have been trying to configure SQL Server 2000 to send
    Alerts to Mail Box. The following I have used.

    1. Windows 2000 SP2
    2. MS Exchange 2000 Evaluation copy
    3. MS Outlook 2000 Evaluation copy.

    Only Windows 2000 with AD- Nwtraders.msft configured

    Member Server of Nwtraders.msft. The steps followed to
    configure Server 2 are:-
    a) Run MSExchange Setup/Forestprep
    b) Run MSExchange Setup/Domainprep
    c) Run MSExchanmge Setup and install MS Exchange 2000
    d) Install MS SQL Server 2000
    e) Install MS Outlook
    f) Configure Outlook and check the email deliveries
    between 2 Accounts. Works perfectly.
    g) Run Enterprise Manager of SQL Server/ Management /
    Right Click Properties
    And in the General Tab we need to provide the mail session
    configuration(mail profile) - Which according to SQL Server
    Training Kit is "MS Exchange Settings"- But for some
    reason I don't get this settings even thought my Exhange
    Server is working fine and I can send email etc.

    I have tried 2 different Server but for some reason the MS
    SQL is not able to see the Mail Profile Settigs which are
    configured in Outlook.

    Help please.

    IIRC, you need to have SQL server service running under
    the domain account that the mailbox is associated with.

    you also need to log on as the service account used to start SQL agent
    and fire up outlook on the SQL server box. this will create the profile
    that you will use in the properties in SEM. (the default name is MS
    Exchange settings but you can call this anything you want) If you are
    using a local system account for the SQL Agent, no mail.

    But the thing I was missing was that in MS SQL Server
    Properties - You need to go and enable "Active Directory
    After that things worked smoothly.
