This should be possible as long as you have access to a SMTP server, through which you can relay your mail.

Not sure if google allows this, but [here's a post from the main SSC site][1] that might help

How about an smtp server on your local machine? [Free SMTP Server][1]

I provided the link as the first free smtp server software that google spat out. I cannot provide support for it, as I have never used it.

'Mail Queued' is not an error, it is saying it has successfully added a mail item to the queue.

There may be an issue in sending the mail. DB Mail is simply a queueing mechanism to handle mail requests, but if you have misconfigured something in the mail settings, then it can still fail.

I suggest starting with this MSDN doc Troubleshooting Database Mail http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms188663.aspx

New code box

There's a new way to format code on the site - the red speech bubble logo will automatically format T-SQL for you. The original code box is still there for XML, etc. More details here.
