Configuring mail for SQL Server Agent - Problem with Exchange and Outlook on same machine?


I would like to configure e-mail alerts on my SQL Server 2000 box.
However, we also run Exchange on the same machine. I've been told there
could be conflicts/issues having Outlook on the same machine as
Exchange; and apparently, one needs Outlook to configure a mail profile
for SQL Server Agent.

Is there, in fact, anything to worry about? If so, are there any
work-arounds beside moving Exchange to another server? (we've only got
one server, so this is not an option for us at this time).
Thanks.

SQL Mail can sometimes be tricky to set up - you can check the MS Knowledge
Base for detailed articles on setup and troubleshooting . This is one
alternative approach:

I don't know if there are any problems with Exchange and Outlook on the same
box (you might want to ask in an Exchange group), but moving Exchange (or
MSSQL) to a separate server might be a good idea anyway, to avoid possible
resource conflicts. Although if you've been running both together for a
while, presumably that's not an issue for you right now.

I've got RH9 Linux with default PHP. Is there a way to send email on Linux to an Exchange Server from PHP and/or other tools when there is *NOT* SMTP access? Has anyone figured out a way to use PHP to get inside an OWA (Microsoft Outlook Web Access) website to send email that way? The reason I ask is because my corporate office is going to do away with our rogue SMTP server access and force everything through Exchange

Hi, I've been able to successfully configure SQL Server Agent to send notification emails to an appropriate Operator in the event of an alert being fired. This all works fine on one condition - that Outlook client is running on the server. If Outlook is not running the alerts still be fired (i.e. the Occurance Rate still increases as and when expected), but the emails being generated will not be sent until the next time Outlook is...

I've built a small app that sends mail through our ISP's SMTP server but when I try to send through my local exchange server I get CDO error. Does webmail use SMTP or does it strictly rely on CDOmail. I don't want to use the Outlook reference because outlook prompts each time program access it and I have found a way to disable that. Can I use webmail with exchange? Thanks
