First, the exchange client needs to be configured on the SQL server machine.  Then the SQL Server Mail needs to be configured through SQL Enterprise Manager.  There is an article on troubleshooting SQLMail and Exchange from Microsoft MSDN Article ID Q153159.  I have below a script on how to send mail during an insert trigger.  It is an insert into a table called 'Document'.  When the insert is made it determines which exchange mailbox to send a message to using the 'DocumentType' table and the field 'szQueueName' in this table.  These are just for standard mailboxes, this script does not work with public folders.  I am also using the 'Inserted' temp table to retrieve some of the information inserted and add it to the message.  The trigger code is:


/****** Object:  Trigger dbo.trigDocument_Insert    Script Date: 6/19/98 8:28:01 AM ******/
CREATE TRIGGER trigDocument_Insert ON dbo.Document
FOR INSERT
AS
      declare @MailReturn int,
            @AMessage varchar(255),
            @TheKey int,
            @ThisBox varchar (255),
            @DocType varchar (255),
            @lDocType int,
            @CaseNumber int,
            @Description varchar (255)

            
      declare curInserted insensitive cursor
            for select Inserted.lPrimaryKey, lDocumentType, lCaseNumber, szDescription, szDocumentDescription, szQueueName
            From Inserted, DocumentType
            Where DocumentType.lPrimaryKey = lDocumentType

      open curInserted

      fetch curInserted into @TheKey, @lDocType, @CaseNumber, @Description, @DocType, @ThisBox

      while @@fetch_status = 0
      begin


            select @AMessage = ('Record Number = ' + convert(varchar(10),@TheKey) + '   Case Number = ' + convert(varchar(10),@CaseNumber) + '   Document Type = ' + @DocType + '   Description = ' + @Description + '    Queue Name = ' + @ThisBox)

            exec @MailReturn = master..xp_sendmail @recipients = @ThisBox,
                  @message = @AMessage,
                  @subject = 'SQL Mail Test'

            if @MailReturn <> 0
            begin
                  insert MailErrors ( lErrorCode, szErrorDescription, szRecipientName, szTableName, lRecordIdentity )
                        values ( @MailReturn, '', @ThisBox, 'Document', @TheKey)
            end

            fetch curInserted into @TheKey, @lDocType, @CaseNumber, @Description, @DocType, @ThisBox
      end

      



      close curInserted
      deallocate curInserted
GO

It may become more readable if you cut and paste it into something else.

Good Luck,
Martin
