Sending email using SQL

Wade Cantley

Email on a bEach

3 oz vodka
1 oz peach schnapps
4 oz cranberry juice
4 oz orange juice

Simply put, you get the mail profile, and use a MSSQL procedure to send it.

/* Dynamically generates the profile name based on the server */
DECLARE @DBMailProfile VARCHAR (20)
SET @DBMailProfile = SUBSTRING(@@SERVERNAME,1,(CHARINDEX('\',@@SERVERNAME)-1)) + '_default'
SELECT @DBMailProfile


EXEC msdb.dbo.sp_send_dbmail
@profile_name = @DBMailProfile,
@recipients = 'bob@businessEmail.com',
@body = 'The stored procedure finished successfully.',
@subject = 'Automated Success Message' ;

Here is an example where a query is passed.


-- if there is a return on the above select, insert the results and send an email showing the results.
    IF @@ROWCOUNT > 0
        BEGIN

            -- Email the results if a new record appears.
            EXEC msdb.dbo.sp_send_dbmail
            @profile_name = 'JobStatus',
            @recipients = 'DBAdmin@yourbusiness.com',
            @body = 'There are new records in the table.',
            @subject = 'New record that requires yoru attention.',
            @query = '
                SELECT * from tblWithData
                where isNew = 1
            '
        END
