You need a From email to send the email to the person. In most cases we create a system email account to sending out alerts and information messages. So you may need to configure one with the help of IT team

You can either specify Database Mail or SQL Mail from the Mail system list. If you go with SQL Mail then you need to select a profile in the Mail profile box. If no profiles are listed then you need to enter the name of the profile that the system can use for sending out the email.
