Hi guys,

At my last company, in SQL SERVER2008R2, I had a stored procedure that sends an email by calling:

EXEC  master.dbo.xp_sendmail

BUT at this new company, I don't have permission and am getting the error:

The EXECUTE permission was denied on the object 'xp_sendmail', database 'mssqlsystemresource', schema 'sys'.

What are my alternatives?  
Here's what I need:  when a new record is inserted into a table, I need to be alerted via an email.  AT my last company, the INSERT TRIGGER would run a stored procedure that puts together the email then sends it out by making a call to xp_sendmail

Thanks
