I am configuring the Database mail in sql server 2005.

While I am doing the following:

EXECUTE msdb.dbo.sysmail_add_profileaccount_sp
@profile_name = 'DBA Profile',
@account_name = 'DBA MailAccount',
@sequence_number = 1

Msg 14607, Level 16, State 1, Procedure sysmail_verify_profile_sp, Line 42
profile name is not valid

I have added the profile with the statements using :

EXECUTE msdb.dbo.sysmail_add_profile_sp
@profile_name = ' DBA Profile',
@description = 'Profile used for database mail'

what should I do

I have configured the databasemail using the wizard, when I do the test mail , I receive it , but when I use it to get job mail notifications , I donot receive any mails.

What might be going wrong.

I got the same problem. Finally I found out the tricky part is after you setup DB mail and successfully tested, you must restart SQL Agent (required) using Surface Area Configuration.
