Why does mail sproc get triggered?

In sql server 2005, I'm getting the error below when trying to run a sproc.  The sproc doesn't reference mail and I'm not sure why this happens.  I have the same db on another server that doesn't throw this error.  What might be causing this?

Msg 15281, Level 16, State 1, Procedure sp_send_dbmail, Line 0

SQL Server blocked access to procedure 'dbo.sp_send_dbmail' of component 'Database Mail XPs' because this component is turned off as part of the security configuration for this server. A system administrator can enable the use of 'Database Mail XPs' by using sp_configure. For more information about enabling 'Database Mail XPs', see "Surface Area Configuration" in SQL Server Books Online.

How often does it happen?
You could set up a SQL Profiler trace and capture for where (rpc started/sql batch started/sp stmt started) LIKE '%sp_send_dbmail%' and wait for it to be captured!  That will tell you the application name that caused it to fire.

It is also possible some sql agent job is attempting to send job completion notifications.

The error message already indicates what you need to so, go to Surface Area Configuration and enable it.

Bottom link "for features"
Pick "database mail" from the left tree, on the right, click tick "Enable.."

Thanks.

What is triggering that sproc?  I don't recall ever integrating it.

Oh no.  I don't see the database mail option for the problem machine.  What does that mean?  I see it on the other machine.

Okay you can check using (run in query window)

exec sp_configure 'Database Mail XPs'

Result of the "run_value" column is what is currently being used (1=on, 0=off)

If that returns the error

"The configuration option 'Database Mail XPs' does not exist, or it may be an advanced option."

Then use this whole block below:

exec sp_configure 'show advanced options', 1
reconfigure
exec sp_configure 'Database Mail XPs'
exec sp_configure 'show advanced options', 0   -- reset the advanced options setting
reconfigure
