Have you configured an account and profile in the Database Mail feature? (Seems a silly question, but I believe you can send database mail through code without performing these steps.)

Configure dbmail: http://blog.sqlauthority.com/2008/08/23/sql-server-2008-configure-database-mail-send-email-from-sql-database/

Enable mail profile: Right click sql server agent > Properties > Alert System > Check "Enable mail profile" and then select the mail profile you made above

Create an operator: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms175962(v=sql.105).aspx

Edit: after you create the operator, you should see the operator name in the dropdown you posted in your screenshot
