Hi all, I have a situation where I have set up a DDS for email delivery, the sql data source behind is pretty complex but all works fine in testing etc.
I set the DDS up to run and it appears to run fine, I get the "x processed of x, 0 errors" on the subscription page of the report and the logs seem to reflect that there were no errors also.
This issue is the emails are just not getting to me, I've double checked I've got the address correct etc.
Where do I start looking to see what's happened? I'm pretty sure it's going to be the client's mail server not playing nicely but I just need a few ideas so I can point their IT team off in the right direction

The following are possible: If your attached email is too large, then your exchange server (for example) will block it. Same, if there are lots of email addresses in the 'to' or 'cc' field etc.
Hope that helps.If it gets through, then it will help you to determine if the issue is at the sql end, or the mail end.

Can you(they) successfully send an email using TSQL?
Just some ideas.

Thanks for the input guys, turns out the ssrs service was set up to use an email account as the sender that didn't exist. The mail server didn't like this as sent them off into the electronic abyss instead of the intended recipient
