When I asked the network administrators to set up the MAPI profile on the
first server on the list to get both SQL Mail and SQL Agent Mail running,
there was no mail client software on the server. What do I need to have the network admin guys do so that I can have my SQL Mail?
Once you have installed the MAPI client, you'll need to run SQL under an account that has a mailbox on your Exchange server. You'll also need to be logged on as this account when configuring the MAPI profile so that the profile will be available to the SQL service account.
For details on configuring SQL Mail, see
ol/sql/tips/70mail.asp. See also, http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;Q165760 and http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;Q263556.
Hope this helps.
