    I need help please, I'm working to migrate our database from a sql server 2000 to version 2008 and in preparation I read in many forums and pages

    the question is this: I read everywhere we recommend you stop using SQLMail to migrate the mail database from the SQL 2008, Database Mail uses SMTP to send mail. I can not find how to receive mail or a similar command to xp_readmail SQL Mail. there is any way to receive mail without using SQL Mail? or I have to keep profits this command?

    thanks I got it saved on my favorites, is very good guide for the configuration of the sending of mail,
    my problem remains the reception of the mail, I could find no place in any tool that impersonates SQLMail (xp_readmail). maybe that's why not an even discontinued.

    also thank you very much
