I have a server that is running SQL Server 2005 SP4 and has a bunch of old legacy DTS jobs. These jobs leverage Legacy SQL Mail to send notifications on job steps. I had to P2V this server in order to install SP4 that was required to fix another bug. After the P2V I was able to install SP4 and that seems to have resolved the other issue we were having. Now, SQL Mail will not work. I have tried everything I can think of to resolve the issue and I can not get Outlook 2003 to run on this server. When I attempt to launch and configure mail it crashes every time. Any one had an issue like this? I am currently waiting on MS to call me back and I hope that they will be able to help me resolve the issue. If you have any thoughts please let me know. @smithco32 on twitter. Thanks and I will follow this post up with the resolution once I get one.
