I have done some layout changes to your question but you might want to edit it and remove your email details, just to stop any bots scanning it and starting to spam you.

I have never done this (or even thought about doing it) but, assuming you are using SQL 2005 or later, it seems microsoft have had requests from various people as there is an msdn blog about it at http://blogs.msdn.com/b/suhde/archive/2009/07/12/how-to-configure-sql-server-database-mail-to-send-email-using-your-windows-live-mail-account-or-your-gmail-account.aspx.

If you are still using SQL 2000 (this could be a good reason to upgrade) you are probably suffering with security issues over the SQL service account not having access to the Outlook account you have created.

Hope this helps.
