Copy Database from Remote SQL Server to Local Server Problem???

On a Windows Vista Home Premium system, I am trying to copy a database from a remote server to my local SQL server development machine.  I can connect to the two servers using SSMS and the Copy Database Wizard.  Once I complete all the Wizard screens and run the job I get the following error.  It has something to do with the Messenger Service for which is not installed on my Vista machine.  In the SQL Server Agent >>>> Alert System >>>> Mail Session, I have Enable Mail Profile Unchecked.  

Is there something else that needs to be done to disable the Alerts and mail session so the copy database job can successfully run???  I have the local server configured for local and remote connections and I can copy a local database.  It's only when I try to copy the database from the remote sql server.

I hate these kinds of errors, very frustrating. My thought is to start the copy database from the remote server, not locally. Is that an option?

Not an option HoggZilla ...  Yes, ver frustrating considering all I want to do is copy a database.
