sysmail_update_profileaccount_sp  { [ @profile_id = ] profile_id 
| [ @profile_name = ] 'profile_name' } ,
    { [ @account_id = ] account_id | [ @account_name = ] 'account_name' } ,
    [ @sequence_number = ] sequence_number

[ @profile_id = ] profile_id

The profile ID of the profile to update. profile_id is int, with a default of NULL. Either the profile_id or the profile_name must be specified.

[ @profile_name = ] 'profile_name'

The profile name of the profile to update. profile_name is sysname, with a default of NULL. Either the profile_id or the profile_name must be specified.

[ @account_id = ] account_id

The account ID to update. account_id is int, with a default of NULL. Either the account_id or the account_name must be specified.

[ @account_name = ] 'account_name'

The name of the account to update. account_name is sysname, with a default of NULL. Either the account_id or the account_name must be specified.

[ @sequence_number = ] sequence_number

The new sequence number for the account. sequence_number is int, with no default. The sequence number determines the order in which accounts are used in the profile.

0 (success) or 1 (failure)

Returns an error if the account specified is not associated with the profile specified.

The sequence number determines the order in which Database Mail uses accounts in the profile. For a new e-mail message, Database Mail starts with the account that has the lowest sequence number. Should that account fail, Database Mail uses the account with the next highest sequence number, and so on until either Database Mail sends the message successfully, or the account with the highest sequence number fails. If the account with the highest sequence number fails, the e-mail message fails.

If more than one account exists with the same sequence number, Database Mail only uses one of those accounts for a given e-mail message. In this case, Database Mail makes no guarantees as to which of the accounts is used for that sequence number or that the same account is used from message to message.

The stored procedure sysmail_update_profileaccount_sp is in the msdb database and is owned by the dbo schema. The procedure must be executed with a three-part name if the current database is not msdb.

Execute permissions for this procedure default to members of the sysadmin fixed server role.

The following example changes the sequence number of the account Admin-BackupServer within the profile AdventureWorks Administrator in the msdb database. After executing this code, the sequence number for the account is 3, indicating it will be tried if the first two accounts fail.

EXECUTE msdb.dbo.sysmail_update_profileaccount_sp
    @profile_name = 'AdventureWorks Administrator'
    ,@account_name = 'Admin-BackupServer',
    ,@sequence_number = 3;
