    I am trying to use the xp_sendmail feature of SQL Server 2005 (64 bit) running on Windows 2003 server. Unfortunately here's what it complains when trying to execute it:
    SQL Mail does not work with the 64-Bit version of SQL Server.
    What will be my other alternative? Appreciated some input.
    Thanks,

    I am using dbmail which uses SMTP instead of MAPI without any issues...

    Thanks for the email.
    I am running SQL 2005 with SP1. Let me see, if SP2 is available for this platform. if yes, then i shall download and apply SP2.

    Thanks for that sp2 link. Has anyone found out how to customize? Article says: "You can now customize parameters that are passed to DatabaseMail90.exe"
