I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Hi,

Good question.  I checked the documentation and it seems to do a very poor job of explaining how the e-mail feature is configured and how it works.

I found instructions in KB Article 915097 on Customer Source that provides step by step instructions on the process.

It's a long setup process, so I haven't bothered to complete all of the steps, but I assume that it will work.

If you run into any problems, let me know.


Thanks,

Hi,

Sorry, to directly answer your question, no, Exchange Server is not required for the Business Alerts e-mail functionality.  It relies on SQL Database Mail and the SQL Server Agent alert system.
