strored procedure doesn't send mail on job but does when manually run

I have this scheduled to run every 4 hours. The stored procedure it calls send an email and dumps data. The procedure dumps the data in ok but doesn't send an email using EXEC msdb.dbo.sp_send_dbmail with the job. The email sends when I manually run it however. Not sure what is wrong.


USE [db]
GO

DECLARE      @return_value int

EXEC      @return_value = [dbo].[UPDATE_my_STATS]

SELECT      'Return Value' = @return_value

GO

if it runs when started manually, but fails when running from a JOB, it's simply a permission problem (against the network!)

when running manually, you are running it with your logged in permissions
when running as job, it's the SQL agent process that runs by default under a localsystem permissions, which has NO permissions to do anything across the network. hence, you need to change this:
