Configuring Sql DB mail to use a gmail account through Outlook Express

Hi Experts,
I've got my outlook express configured to use a gmail account and it sends and receives emails without any errors. i have a trigger that i've attached to a db table which will email the owner and the user when ever a new record is inserted. i've checked it through my Office outlook while at work and it works fine and the sysmail_mailitems have 1 against the status for these mails(have received them also) but when i try to do the same through outlook express which is using the gmail account the dbmail stays queued and fails with status set to 2. can anyone help me please?

Hi Ritesh,

Thank you for the articles but i've already managed to send db mails through my office outlook account the problem is that when i try to do the same with gmail as the pop and smtp servers the mails are not sent a test mail through the regular email works but not the dbmail. i've attached two screen shots where the first one shows that i've successfully sent mails using my office outlook email but the mails that i've sent using sa account (gmail account) has status as 2/3 or 0. second attachment shows my dbmail profile screen i'm doing something wrong which i cant seems to find!! please help!!

You can't do it with Outlook Express.

You have to use a full version of Outlook. Outlook must be up and running under the same user account that you have your SQL Services running as.
