DB mail account and profile security RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    i have created a DB mail account and profile to use mail functionality in sql server.

    I wanted to keep if as safe from other users so that no body should be able to modify account and profile settings which i ahve configured.

    kindly suggest how can i achieve this.

  • Only members of the SysAdmin Server role can modify email profile, common users don't have this permission

  • Nope. SysAdmin has the highest privileges in SQL server and it is right to do so. What if you leave the company?

  • There is no way to restrict anything a sysadmin user can do.  It is very bad practice to allow many people to have sysadmin rights.
