Summary

This chapter showed how Database Mail has elevated the status of emailing with SQL Server from somewhat difficult to use to enterprise class. Microsoft has achieved this goal by relying on cross-platform industry standards, by making configuration easy, by providing a comprehensive set of system objects for storage and tracking, by adding failover capability, and by utilizing the Service Broker infrastructure.

Chapter 13, “SQL Server Agent,” digs much deeper into configuring SQL Server Agent jobs and alerts, as well as using Database Mail for job and alert notifications.
