DId you restart the SQL Agent after configuring the mail profile for it.

There are two mail systems, SQL Mail, run by the SQL Server database engine used to send applicaiton emails etc , and SQL Agent Mail, run by SQL Agent which uses Database Mail set up with a profile for the SQL Agent to send alerts/ notifications.

Do you have Database Mail and SQL Mail both defined to use the profile?

Here is a good example on sqltips - http://www.mssqltips.com/tip.asp?tip=1100 

And here is a scripted approach.
-- Create a Database Mail profile
EXECUTE msdb.dbo.sysmail_add_profile_sp
@profile_name = 'SQL2005_Email_ProfileName',
@description = 'Notification service for SQL Server' ;

-- Create a Database Mail account
EXECUTE msdb.dbo.sysmail_add_account_sp
@account_name = 'SQL Server Notification Service',
@description = 'SQL Server Notification Service',
@email_address = 'john.doe@domain_name.com',
@replyto_address = 'john.doe@domain_name.com',
@display_name = 'SQL Server Notification Service',
@mailserver_name = 'smtpserver.domain_name.com' ;

-- Add the account to the profile
EXECUTE msdb.dbo.sysmail_add_profileaccount_sp
@profile_name = 'SQL2005_Email_ProfileName',
@account_name = 'SQL Server Notification Service',
@sequence_number =1 ;

-- Grant access to the profile to the DBMailUsers role
EXECUTE msdb.dbo.sysmail_add_principalprofile_sp
@profile_name = 'SQL2005_Email_ProfileName',
@principal_id = 0,
@is_default = 1 ;

SELECT * FROM msdb.dbo.sysmail_profile
SELECT * FROM msdb.dbo.sysmail_account

to test:
sp_send_dbmail [ [ @profile_name = ] 'profile_name' ]
[ , [ @recipients = ] 'recipients [ ; ...n ]' ]
[ , [ @copy_recipients = ] 'copy_recipient [ ; ...n ]' ]
[ , [ @blind_copy_recipients = ] 'blind_copy_recipient [ ; ...n ]' ]
[ , [ @subject = ] 'subject' ]
[ , [ @body = ] 'body' ]
[ , [ @body_format = ] 'body_format' ]
[ , [ @importance = ] 'importance' ]
[ , [ @sensitivity = ] 'sensitivity' ]
[ , [ @file_attachments = ] 'attachment [ ; ...n ]' ]
[ , [ @query = ] 'query' ]
[ , [ @execute_query_database = ] 'execute_query_database' ]
[ , [ @attach_query_result_as_file = ] attach_query_result_as_file ]
[ , [ @query_attachment_filename = ] query_attachment_filename ]
[ , [ @query_result_header = ] query_result_header ]
[ , [ @query_result_width = ] query_result_width ]
[ , [ @query_result_separator = ] 'query_result_separator' ]
[ , [ @exclude_query_output = ] exclude_query_output ]
[ , [ @append_query_error = ] append_query_error ]
[ , [ @query_no_truncate = ] query_no_truncate ]
[ , [ @query_result_no_padding = ] query_result_no_padding ]
[ , [ @mailitem_id = ] mailitem_id ] [ OUTPUT ]

Hi,

START \ add remove windows components and install IIS with SMTP Services.
I don't know what verion OS you have.

2003
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/8b83ac7t.aspx 

2008
Windows 2008 Server Manager Features right-click Add Feature SMTP Server

To manage the SMTP service on Windows Server 2008, you must use Internet Information Services (IIS) 6.0 Manager. Ensure that you install IIS 6.0 Management tools in Server Manager.

Cheers,
