Tips for Sending Emails in SSIS Packages

The purpose is this entry is to give a basic introduction to using the SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS) Send Mail Task and detail a couple of quirks that I've run across.

To send email via an SSIS package, first you need to drag the "Send Mail Task" into your control flow. Then, it is as simple as setting up your SMTP Connection and configuring the To, From, Subject and Message fields.

The task editor dialog gives three pages where you can configure these options, General, Mail and Expressions. You can get to the task editor by double clicking on the task, or right clicking and choosing "edit". These pages are described below:

School vs. Work

Hi, my name is Bethany and I joined the Ravenglass Team back in June. If there is one thing I know how to do, it is go to school. I have a Masters in Computer Science, a Bachelors in Computer Information Systems, and an Associates in Liberal Arts General Studies. This post describes some of the biggest differences from school and work. I came across a basic drawing of the main difference between school and work while researching the content of this post: here. Basically, School = Money < Time and Work = Money > Time.

Wake Up Call!
The first shock I encountered and probably the biggest was that I could no longer sleep until noon and get up just in time for my 1 pm class. The night owl in me fights tooth and nail every morning when the alarm goes off.

"Sick Days"
I no longer have a choice of whether to go or stay home, if you don't go to work you don't get paid and you will most likely find yourself with more free time than you bargained for, while you are hunting for the next job.

$$$
In school I paid the college to be there, to learn, to absorb, to have them print out a piece of paper telling employers that I did the work. Now I get paid to take everything I had stored up in the back of my mind out and display it in code for the world to see.

Mindless Coding or Finding a Purpose
I finally have a sense that what I am doing here is being used by people and not just stored on my professor's computer. Every assignment I ever did was just busy work to show I could do it and when it was finished, it was stored, most likely never again to see the light of day.

No I in Team
I finally have a work family, all quirky in their own ways but also amazing too. Something that may not interest me might be of interest to one of my peers. I can go to them and fix a problem that would have taken me hours on my own, searching for an answer. There's also no need for an honesty policy on this syllabus, we are all developing our code for the greater good of our clients.
