For SQL Server Emailing, we need to create an database mail account and then a database mail profile.

If we send a email with below on SQL Management Studio and executed the following script:

@recipients=’[email protected]’, @profile name = ‘Profilename’, EXEC msdb.dbo.sp send dbmail @subject =’test email,’ @body =’test email,’ @body format =’HTML’

The profile name is incorrect. 42000 [SQLSTATE] Error 14607.

Reading sql server error log location from SQL Query

Identifying SQL Server Error Log File used by SQL Server Database Engine can be done by reading SQL Server Error Logs. DBA can execute the XP_READERRORLOG extended stored procedure to read the SQL Server Error Log and search for its location used by the instance of SQL Server.

USE master
Go
xp_readerrorlog 0, 1, N'Logging SQL Server messages in file', NULL, NULL, N'asc'
Go

Solution for Resolving the Error

The profile we created may not be made public and we have to change it security and make it Public.

So from SSMS (SQL management Studio), navigate to Database mail -> Configure Database mail, and select option-> Manage Profile Security.
