I tried to set up event processing on a single server for testing. I switched the event severity to "Info" and turned on e-mail. Under the advanced button i stated the mailbox to recieve the mail, thei ip-number of the smtp server and the port on the server. I fill in a "dummy" message test.
This works as long as im using a "real" Microsoft SQL server. When im trying to get it running with MSDE it fails. Its not sending anything.
Im sure theres nothing wrong with the smtp server because it is running other applications without errors, and its sending messages from the Adminkit with Microsoft SQL.
I tried several different setups in VMWARE, but whenever im using MSDE its not working.
