Hi,<BR><BR>I am trying to configure SQL mail on SQL SERVER 2000 which is on WIN 2k machine. My Mail server: Exchange Server 2000 and the Mail client: MSFT Outlook 2000.<BR><BR>I used the same profile (cretaed using Windows domain account) with which i am accessing my email through Outlook via exchange server.Also i made the service &#039;MSSQLserver&#039; to start with this account only. But the strange thing is, the profile does not show up in SQL Mail Configuration - profile name box.<BR><BR>If i type in the profile name and click &#039;test&#039; it comes up with the following error:<BR><BR>Microsoft SQL-DMO (ODBC SQLState: 42000)<BR>Error 18025: xp_test_mapi_profile : failed with error 0x80004005.<BR><BR>Please let me know where i am going wrong.<BR><BR>Thanks in advance,<BR>Shyam.<BR>
