If you have been following my posts at all, you know I have had some issues with Database Mail (1, 2, 3, 4). Well the first one has been fixed, I have not tested the fix yet, by Microsoft in Cumulative Update Package 8 for Service Pack 2. The article for that is here, http://support.microsoft.com/kb/953841/en-us. Microsoft never updated my Connect post, where they said it would not be fixed unless a QFE was requested, but I'm not complaining.
Now I need to try it out on my personal SQL Server.
