We had the same error message with our Server. One thing that I remember from it that it will work if you are using a SQL login but if you use NT Authentication it will not.  To fix the problem we had to rebuild the profile and then stop and start the sql mail service.  There may have been a server reboot in there also.
SQL Server service pack 1 might solve it. More help is available on Microsoft support website at http://suppoprt.microsoft.com,

search by "0x80040111" error number and chose "All Products" good luck!

In what profile did you make the change?  Are you referring to the mail profile that's configured on the SQL server itself?
