SQL DBMail not working

Coloplast asked
Last Modified: 2015-12-17
Hi Guys,
I have a Stored Procedure containing code that will send an email.
This works if I execute the stored procedure directly.
When I start the Stored Procedure from a SQL job the mail never arrives, actually it's never being sent.
I tried to make the account running the job SysAdmin and then it works, but of course this is not to be :-)
So it's a security issue, but which rights do I need to give the user runnning the job?
The MailUser Role in MSDB is not enough!
I'm running SQL 2008R2 on this system.
