Question on Sql Server jobs

snyperj asked
Medium Priority
Last Modified: 2012-05-11
Our biz system uses SQL Server 2005 a the back end.

We would like to automatically email a link to a web survey to certain customers when there order completes.

The trigger in the database would be an invoice being generated (means the job is complete in our process.)

Can a SQL Server job be built to send an email such as this?  Can anyone point me to some info on creating these?  Thanks!
