I am configuring database mail on SQL Server 2005. I am creating mail profile and need to add an account to it. I was wondering what kind of account does it have to be, domain account or it can be just any account created on sql server?

I wrote the article, so I was hoping you'd have a look.  I don't remember ever having to add an account to it....if anything it would be a domain account, but I don't remember it asking that.  

Did you look at the article I wrote?

I know what you're asking now...the param @AccountName is just something you make up...it doesn't have to be a real account....

chapmandew, I looked at your article and a couple of others but unfortunatelly none of them specifies what account should it be:(

The account has to have an e-mail, so that's what confused me in the first place

Do you know how can I view the mail profile I just created?

Im pretty sure it doesn't have to be an email account...at least a valid one.  Mostly these are accounts that youdon't reply back to...you know what I mean?

If you did it through tsql, you can go to the management folder in SSIS and navigate to DatabaseMail...you can view the properties from there.
