I've set up database mail in the usual fashion on the virtual instance  of a active/passive failover SQL cluster.
Unfortunately no joy with the test mail see attached error from database mail log.
From internet search I can't see this as a frequnently occuring problem - using the "remote server" didn't work.
Any suggestions ?

Try setting it up on both the physical machines, if you have two nodes.

If I recall well (from past experiences) Database mail (job notification, ecc) doesn't work properly in a cluster environment.

There are workaround solutions with third part components (MAPI) and some stored procedure implementation calling these components.

Database mail and notification works on cluster. Is your system RTM, or what SP have you applied? SP1 address this bug

How to set up database mail look at:http://www.databasejournal.com/features/mssql/article.php/3626056

Please refer to KB article # 908360 for work around.

Till then using SQLAgent profile for sending mails for notifications is the workaround

If you want to use DBMail profile to send notifications for job runs, the workaround would be to add a TSQL job step as the last step to the job that will call sp_notify_operator.

Hope this helps!

No real movement on this problem. I've tried the available solutions but they have not worked. Introducing SCOM with its own set of problems regarding cluster set ups.
