    We have an absent SQL Server 2000 administrator. SQL Mail has been working fine up until a short while ago when it stopped working in Enterprise Manager DTS Package Jobs. It still works fine in QA - which also uses xp_sendmail.

    I have right-clicked SQL Mail in Support Services in EM and the current profile tests as working OK. Does anybody have any idea what I could try, or, perhaps, where I can look to edit the profile if need be? I looked in Outlook on the server as per BOL, but the profile doesn't exist there...

    There is an issue with SQL mail in sql server 2000... if it looses connectivity with exchange due to exchange restart or network issue when it tries to send an email then it can't re-establish the connection...

    Try the following...
    1. run sp_startmail and see you send the test email using xp_sendmail...
    2. Restart the sql agent and check the jobs can send an email....

    If you two of above don't work...then restart sql services and test it again...

    I believe that has been fixed in SP4.
