Thanks Jegan.

  description
The mail could not be sent to the recipients because of the mail server failure. (Sending Mail using Account 1 (2010-11-16T08:01:43).
Exception Message: Cannot send mails to mail server. (The operation has timed out.). )

The notifications I set up working fine (index maintenance, update stats etc.,).
But  these are some business reports with attachment is not working. The text file was created in it looks good.

The problem is not sending it by email.

Any thoughts...

Ok, Can you check whether the Exchange server or mail server is up and running and works without any issues.
As of now, SQL Server is not able to connect to your Exchange Server and also check out for any connectivity issues between these two.

Or your Database mail configuration might have been corrupted.
Try reconfiguring Database mail again to get it work and steps to configure it here.
