DTS send mail task hangs

I am trying to send an email using the send mail task in DTS. I am using OUTLOOK.   Both the SQL SERVER service account and the Agent account are domain accounts.  Both accounts are local administrators on the box and are mapped to the sysadmin

  Email  alerts work- I get the email from SQL SERVER AGENT.
  Emails requested at the end of a scheduled DTS package work fine.
  Emails from  a send mail task within a DTS work if the package is not scheduled
However, Emails from  a send mail task within a DTS fails if the package is scheduled
1 Solution
turn on package logging and post the send mail error.

For anyone else having this problem- the final answer was provided by Microsoft Support.  It was a MDAC version problem, resolved by installing sp of Windows Server 2003
