 SQL Mail behavior problems.

Hi All,

I am running 2 instances of SQL on one win2k server. The
default instance is version 7.00.961, sp3 has been
applied.
The second instance is version 8.00.384 sp1 has been
applied.
The reason for 2 instances is that I had 3 databases that
are used by 3rd party apps and could not go up to 8.00.

On the 7.x instance I have scheduled jobs for maintenance
plans and one scheduled job that queries a database for
overdue work orders and emails the reports as an
attachment to group of supervisors. Its supposed to run at
6 am every morning. The job has failed to run 3 times
since the move and upgrade. The error logs indicate a mapi
login error.

The 8x instance also has scheduled jobs, that reports to
me for failed maintenance plans. I have not had any SQL
mail problems with it yet.

Digging into the problem I checked the profile settings
SQL Agent settings, and test SQL Mail. Doing all that and
not having any errors. I try starting the job it still
fails. I try the script in Query Analyzer it also fails
with a mapi login failure.

Then I try stopping and restarting SQL Mail and run the
script. Amazingly it works this time! I rerun the job and
it works!

I’m wondering if the dual instances of services are
confusing mapi services? Has anyone else encountered this
behavior?

Have you tried setting 2 profiles, one for SQL7 and one for 2000 ?

 SQL Mail behavior problems.

If I run the following script using Query Analyzer on the
8x instance it properly sends the mail. (Keep in mind that
2 instances of SQL Server is running on the same machine.)



Next when I run the above script on the 7x instance using
Query Analyzer I get the mapi login error.

"Server: Msg 17903, Level 18, State 1, Line 0
MAPI login failure."

Then I run the following script against the 7x instance

use master
go
xp_stopmail
go
xp_startmail
go


It stops and starts succefully and mail is sent. The 8x
instance is not releasing the MAPI Session. I tested it in
reverse, 7x did not hang on to the MAPI Session. I'm going
to add to my 7x jobs the stop and start commands as a work-
around. This Issue looks like a bug that should be
reported.

For what it is worth, our SQL Mail became less reliable with SP2.
I cannot prove it was SP2 that did it, but that was the only variable that
comes to mind.

I want to reinforce the need to check ALL the settings according to article
Q263556. Additionally, please check what versions of DLLs (the ones listed
on the same article) is on the system.

Reinaldo,

Talk to Dwayne Lanclos. I have provided Docs to him to consistently
duplicate the bug with sqlmap70.dll from SP2 using a POP/SMTP client.
