I am having a problem using SQL Server 2005 database mail from ASP.net (w/ VB.net).

I can run the stored procedure that sends the mail in SQL Server and it works perfect.

However, when I run the same stored procedure in ASP.net the email is not sent.

I obviously am missing something somewhere, any help????

Its actually the user who is running it from asp.net. His permissions are not set accordingly.

I was guessing that.

Does it run using the Network Service account, like most ASP.net processes?

What permissions need to be set?

I have discovered one other thing that is helpful to know.

If I run the stored proc using Windows Authentiacation, the email is sent without a problem.

If I run the stored proc using SQL Authentication, the email is not sent.

The question is not answered.

I need to know why SQL Authentication is not working, but Windows Authentication is working?

What account is used by SQL Authentication? What permissions need to be set for this account on the SMTP server?
