SQL SERVER – Send Email From SQL Server – Configure Database Mail – SQL in Sixty Seconds #039 – Video

SQL SERVER - Send Email From SQL Server - Configure Database Mail - SQL in Sixty Seconds #039 - Video 60x60 Let me start this blog post with negative note: SQL Server is not mass mailing software. If you are thinking of sending emails using SQL Server instead of your mail server – I suggest you stop doing that NOW! Whenever, I see any application using SQL Server as a mail server – I always vote against it. Well, if this is so bad, then why is it possible to send email through SQL Server. The reason is simple – there are many SQL Server Administrative scenarios where we need SQL Server to send emails, e.g. Maintenance task status, job failure messages, operators alerts etc. I suggest to use Database mail option during this situation.

In this SQL in Sixty Seconds I explain how one can configure database mail quickly and send emails to users. If you can’t watch this video – I suggest you to read this blog post which describes the same using images – Configure Database Mail – Send Email From SQL Database.
