SYMPTOMS

In Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Service Pack 3 (SP3), when you use Enterprise Manager to view SQL Server agent properties, the Mail Profile combo box that displays profiles is disabled. Additionally, when you try to use the xp_sendmail stored procedure from a DTS package, the operation may fail, and you receive an error message in the DTS package logs that is similar to the following:
Mail task initialization of MAPI failed, please make sure you have messaging service on the system.
This problem occurs when you run all the following programs from the same server computer:
  • SQL Server 2000 SP3 or SQL Server 2000 Service Pack 3a (SP3a)
  • Microsoft Office Outlook 2000 or Outlook 2002
  • Microsoft Exchange Server 2003
For a list of all publicly released SQL Server 2000 Post-Service Pack 3a hotfixes, see the following article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
810185 SQL Server 2000 hotfix update for SQL Server 2000 Service Pack 3 and 3a

CAUSE

When you install Exchange Server 2003, the Mapi32.dll file that is located in the System32 folder of the computer is updated to version 6.5.6944.0 from version 1.0.2536.0 or an earlier version. However, version 6.5.6944.0 of the Mapi32.dll file may not be compatible with MAPI functions such as the MAPILogon, MAPILogoff, and MAPISendMail functions. This incompatibility causes problems to occur with SQL Server Agent mail.

Note SQL Mail behaves as expected when you use version 6.5.6944 of the Mapi32.dll file.
