Migrating DBMail Settings

Frank Gill has a T-SQL script to help with database mail migration:

This week, I was working on a migration for a client.  The migration was moving databases from a stand-alone instance to a two-node Availability Group.  When it came to moving the Database Mail settings, I discovered they had 21 sets of profiles and accounts.  Not wanting to manually create 42 Database Mail profiles, I set out to automate the process.  A web search yielded this blog post by Iain Elder. This script does what I was looking for, but would only generate settings for a single Database Mail profile.  Using Iain’s code as a starting point, I modified it to create Database Mail settings for all profiles on an instance.  The script is listed below. I hope this simplifies your SQL Server migrations.
