xp_sendmail problem

Hi All,
I have moved all my databases, logins, procedures from old server to a
new one. When I try to send email from new server, I get the following

Server: Msg 18035, Level 16, State 1, Line 0
xp_sendmail: Your SQL Server Service is running under the local system
account. You need to change your SQL Server Service account ro run
under a domain account in order to complete this operation
I have gone through several KB articles and have followed the
recommendations there but without any luck.

I would highly appreciate if you could suggest me something.

Thanks a million in advance.

Best regards,

And have you testing outlook logging in as that account?
