problem notification e-mail when job failure RRS feed

  • Question

  • HI all,
    I build a simple job that failure....like SELECT * FROOOM table and in the notification introduce an operator (me).
    Now I got enable database mail, try with e-mail test from MANAGMENT > DATABSEMAIL > SEN e-MAIL TEST.

    This one arrive me successful, but on JOB failure never coming...

    This is a problem 'cause I don't see the failure of importante tasks like back-up.

    Some one can give me a feedback how I can correctly set-up database mail. I got 5 sqlserver instance and only one don't send me message.

    A few basic checks:


    Can you confirm that you have the job set up with a Notification to send an email on failure? Does the operator you are alerting to have a valid email address?
