I am trying to set up email functionality of my SQL Server 2005. I set up alerts/notifications but seems like the email is not working. How do I set up email within SQL Server 2005 and also can I use SMTP Server? If yes, how and where do I set up that in SQL Server?

Thanks much.

Since emails are not working, drop existing database mail profile and create it newly.
Steps to configure email

>> and also can I use SMTP Server?

No need for SMTP starting from SQL Server 2005 and instead you can use built in database mail itself.

@rrjeqan17, I am getting the following error in "email log file viewer" after I set up database email.

"The mail could not be sent to the recipients because of the mail server failure. (Sending Mail using account 2 (Date/time). Exception Message: Could not connect to mail server. (No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it. [ip address])"

Any thoughts?
Also, can I get some help on SMTP Server because most of our application here use a remote server to send out emails, so that could be another option.

Thank you.

Check whether you have Antivirus running in your machine and blocking ports associated for that..
Turn off anitvirus and Firewall once and test Database mail again to confirm that.

Are you able to get Test mail delivered successfully after configuring Database mail as mentioned in my link..
