→ This article refers to SQL Blob Viewer, which has now been renamed to SQL Image Viewer. The techniques described in this blog is still applicable, as the functionality of the product remains the same. Only the name has changed.
SQL Blob Viewer 4 was released last month, with a bunch of usability improvements.
One of it is the ability to send email notifications for the export process. With the Professional Edition, you can schedule export jobs to run using the Windows Task Scheduler. Previously, the job would run, and a log generated of the export process. If there were any errors raised, you would only know about it if you inspected the log.
With email notifications, you can now receive a copy of the log via email. You can also choose to have emails to be sent only when errors are raised. The email options are configured in the Export Wizard.
Before email notifications can be sent, you would need to set up your SMTP mail settings first.
