Setting up dbmail in SQL Server 2005 on Server 2003

I am having trouble setting up dbmail in SQL Server 2005 running on Server 2003. I am trying to send mail through an Exchange 2007 Server. Do I need to use the SQL Service account with Windows authentication? Also on the Exchange side, how should the "receive connector" be set?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

When using dbmail you can use a Windows account or a local account. Dbmail uses SMTP to send email, it doesn’t use the account that SQL Server is running under.

The receive connector can be left with the default settings. When you configure the dbmail settings you can give it a Windows account and password to authinticate with.
