SQL Server 2008 Mail

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.

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.
