  • Hi Urang,

    In SQL Server, Databasemail is the only service that can notify operators for SQL Server status.

    So, my opinion is build a maintenance plan for database mail. If database mail is failed, we should fix it as soon as possible. But if Database mail has been configured well at the first. I think it can hardly be broken.
