Send email as part of an automated script

Hi All

I have a asp website database running on SQL 2005, unforetunately it forces an admin to approve a user once said user has registered. What happens is that they register and get an email stating that they need to wait for their registration email. When they are approved they get another email stating that all is ok. I have no control over this process or the emails so I need to work around it.

What I can do is execute 2 update scripts as often as possible using the agent to approve people, what I can't do at the moment is generate an email to them stating that they are now approved.

Any ideas on how I acheive this? I'm guessing some sort of trigger instead of using the agent but honestly I have not got a clue.

Thanks in advance.

Regards

Durban

The update scripts I have are as follows:

UPDATE    aspnet_Membership
SET              IsApproved = 1
FROM         UserProfile INNER JOIN
                      aspnet_Membership ON UserProfile.UserID = aspnet_Membership.UserId
WHERE     (UserProfile.IsBTSStaff = 0) AND (UserProfile.IsApproved = 0)

UPDATE    UserProfile
SET              IsApproved = 1
WHERE     (IsBTSStaff = 0) AND (IsApproved = 0)

You could try using the sp_send_dbmail procedure ... doing that from the trigger could be your solution ... or do the update based on a new user and do both updates and the sp_send_dbmail in one transaction ...

however you have to configure the SQL Server to use it ... I don't know if you have that opportunity ...

That is exactly what I did, cheers anyway.

I'm quite happy actually, I just wrote my first trigger!
