Validating Database Mail

Frank Gill has a script to validate that your database mail settings are valid:

In my last post, I shared a script to automate the migration of SQL Server Database Mail settings. In this post, I show how to send test e-mails from all Database Mail profiles on an instance.

I hope you can put this code to use in your migrations.

Click through for the script.
