I want to create a dts package that will run a query to acquire the email addresses.  I then want to email these people a message. The addresses can change, but the Subject and Message of the email will pretty much be the same. This is my first time working with DTS Packages. I'm not sure the best way to go about this?

I'm trying this:
Exec master.dbo.xp_Sendmail @recipients  = @mailTo, @copy_recipients = @mailCC,
@subject = @mailSubject, @message = @mailBody, @user='dbo'

However I'm getting this error: xp_sendmail: Invalid parameter '@user'
In help it says the parameter should be @set_user but if I try that then it says parameter @user is required.
Any ideas?

Disregard last post, I got it to work. I didn't have the SQL Service running with a valid account. I also removed the @user and it worked.
