SQL Server blocked access to procedure 'sys.xp_sendmail' of component 'SQL 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 'SQL Mail XPs' by using sp_configure. For more information about enabling 'SQL Mail XPs', see "Surface Area Configuration" in SQL Server Books Online.



Where do I enable Mail?

You can go to Configuration Tools under your Microsoft SQL Server  menu from Start.

Run SQL Server Surface Area Configuration

Click on Surface Area Configuration for Features

Select "Database Mail" from the list and check "Enable Database Mail stored procedures"

You can use sp_configure to enable database mail. Here is the MSDN.

If you need a good tutorial on configuring database mail completely, please refer to Pinal Dave's blog entry on the subject.

Best regards,

64-bit versus 32-bit SQL Server should not matter. Database Mail is a feature of full editions of SQL Server 2008, such as Standard and Enterprise. However, Database Mail is not an option for the Express edition.
