The other day I posted about an issue I was having with SQL Mail after doing a P2V of a server and also installing SP4 for SQL Server 2005. The root issue was that Outlook would not work on the server and I do not know why. But thanks to Twitter I found sp_send_dbmail and pushed that to our dev team and talked them into using it. I think this is a better way to go since now we are off SQL Mail and on to native SQL Server 2005 dbmail. So our Devs have now changed all the jobs to use the SP and now everything is working as it should.
