Yes. you can send Mail through SQL Server.

you have two ways..
1. SQL Mail (Using MAPI)
2. Database Mail (Using SMTP)

Database Mill is the replacement of SQL Mail. From SQL server 2005 onwards Database Mail is recommended one instead of SQL Mail.

Try to proceed with Database Mail..

1. You have to configure the Database Mail(Management --> Database Mail --> right click...)
2. Restart the SQL Server Agent Service as It take effect.
3. Define the Mail profile and an account for that profile.
4. Choose the profile you want to set as default in SQL Server Agent Service.
5. Use "sp_send_dbmail" to send mail through Database Mail...


If not I then who, If not now then when

Yes you can
You can use SQL mail under management node to send the mail.

Hope this helps.
