We have SQL Server 2000 running on two servers. One of those servers can send mail, the other gives an error when I try to configure it. So the account can send and receive mail. We use Exchange 2000, Windows 2000, Outlook 2000.
I log in as systemuser, and then create a new account for Outlook. This seems to work normally. I can find the exchange server and the account of the systemuser. The check for the account works okay. Then I've changed the settings for the services MSSQLSERVER and SQLAGENT. Now they logon as systemuser.
Having done this all, if I go to the server's support services/sql mail/properties and test for the account, I get the above error. The drop down menu is empty. I believe the account should show up here. Any ideas what I'm doing wrong here?
