SQL Server Agent errors in Error log

Posted on 2007-07-23

We are on SQL 2005 SP1 on Windows 2003 SP1 environment.  Since installation and establishment of SQL mail we constantly get these error messages in the SQL Server Agent error log.  I googled and the only thing I can find is for the version prior the 'go live' of SQL 2005.

[298] SQLServer Error: 2812, Could not find stored procedure 'msdb.dbo.xp_sqlagent_notify'. [SQLSTATE 42000] (DisableAgentXPs)

[260] Unable to start mail session (reason: Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.SqlIMail.Server.Common.BaseException: Mail configuration information could not be read from the database. ---> System.Data.SqlClient.SqlException: profile name is not valid
   at System.Data.SqlClient.SqlConnection.OnError(SqlException exception, Boolean breakConnection)
   at System.Data.SqlClient.SqlInternalConnection.OnError(SqlException exception, Boolean breakConnection)
   at System.Data.SqlClient.TdsParser.ThrowExceptionAndWarning(TdsParserStateObject stateObj)

[355] The mail system failed to initialize; check configuration settings
