SQL DBMail strange behavour

Hi,
I have a strange thing going on on our SQL server 2008 . I have 2 mail profiles set up. One for internal use and one who sends mail to our customers (customer service).

There is only one T-SQL job that uses the customer service profile and this job works fine.
The internal profile is in use "all over the place" in several scripts and jobs.
I have never experienced any strange things with the customer service mails.

But on the internal mails strange things happens, all of these are set up to use the internal profile. But sometimes it uses the customer service profile.
E.g. I have a loop that sends an email to all our shops with information. And suddenly in the middle of a loop ONE email is sent using the customer service profile.
I'm unable to reproduce this so I'm kind of stuck.. This happens a few times a week.

Here is the code I'm using:
Internal:
EXECUTE msdb.dbo.sp_send_dbmail @profile_name = 'InternalProfile', @recipients = @mottagere, @copy_recipients = @mottagereCC, @subject = @emne, @body_format = 'HTML', @body = @epost, @file_attachments = @filvedlegg

Open in new window


Customer service:
EXECUTE msdb.dbo.sp_send_dbmail @profile_name = 'CustomerService',@body_format = 'HTML', @recipients = @mailAdresse,@blind_copy_recipients = @BCC_Recipents, @subject = @mailSubject,@body = @meldingEpost

Open in new window

Is the internal profile set up with multiple SMTP Accounts? Database Mail gives you the option to add multiple servers so that if one is unavailable, it can attempt the next one. It may not be using the customer service profile necessarily, but just sending mail that looks as though it is, if it's connecting to the mail server the same way that profile does.

To confirm this, open your "Internal" profile and see what SMTP server entries are listed there.

As a side note, I've never seen this happen - I've dealt with multiple profiles on a number of servers and have set up jobs to use both, and I've not observed this behavior. There may be something specific you're doing to trigger it, if it's indeed a bug.

You are correct, I've missed this one. The internal profile was set up with 2 smtp accounts, where the customer service was priority 2.

Easy solution on a frustrating problem! Thanx!
