"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Hi - MSDN always comes with multiple scenarios and nice to knows
On MSSQL 7.0/2000, If using Outlook... Other Mail Client might differ slightly...

1.> Make sure your SQL Server Services (including SQL Agent) are started using a Domain Account.
2.> Make sure that Domain Account as a Mailbox.
3.> Install MS Outlook (for example) on your Database Server.
4.> Send an Email from your MSSQL Server using Outlook (else Exchange Server does not always validate the Mailbox correctly).
5.> Restart the SQL Services.

Then to send Email using T-SQL, look at the syntax of xp_sendmail in Book On Line.

Hope this help.
