SQL 2008 64 Bit Enterprise
Windows 2008 Server 64 Bit
Three SQL database instances

I have database mail working great and has been since sql 2008 be running.

I made a change to the reply to email address save the database mail settings and restarted the SQL Agent,

But I still get the old reply to email address.

Also I setup a new maintenance  plain for a new database and all the jobs have notification set to send email to the operator only when job fails.
I am getting the email every time the job runs which is successful job ends.

Do I need to restart SQL?
Is there a tsql command I can run to check things?

Incidentally, the easiest way to change account information is using the system Stored Procedure:

thanks for responding so fast

my results using the commands above match with what I entered using the SSIS

The second command sysmail_update_account_sp  failed did I miss something see below

EXECUTE msdb.dbo.sysmail_help_account_sp

account_id      name      description      email_address      display_name      replyto_address      servertype      servername      port      username      use_default_credentials      enable_ssl

account_id      name      description      email_address      display_name      replyto_address      servertype      servername      port      username      use_default_credentials      enable_ssl

Msg 2812, Level 16, State 62, Line 1
Could not find stored procedure 'sysmail_update_account_sp'.

What I changed on the database mail was just the replyto email address  
saved and it still uses the old replyto

Thanks Anthony

I thought the emailaddress filed was the send to address but that is in the operator config
So I changes the emailaddress field in the database mail and now all good.
