Earlier this week, I published a link to several Microsoft documents that walk you through the installation of SQLMail. I promised a followup to that article, so here ya go.

Yep, this is possible, and wow is it cool. Read on for the answer to this question as well as detailed information on SQLMail.

Just a quick note to say there is a slight problem with the loop in the article not returning. The default behaviour of xp_findnextmsg is to find all mail whether its been marked read or not thus you will just get an infinite loop as @hMessage will never be NULL.Fixed here

Great article though
