  1. It would be good to know how what are the “configuration pieces” are responsible for picking the BAM message based on the alert definition, and routing that message to the Database Mail, so that it could be sent out as email delivery.

    The issue I am having is, I mistakenly deleted the profile created by the Configuration, and thus don’t see any BAM alert emails flowing out.

    Yet I can receive the test emails sent thru Database Mail/Send Test Email opton. Also, in the BAM portal, the BAM alerts filter query correctly identifies the BAM messages, that should have been picked for alerts.

    Wondering what changes need to be done to synchronize my Database Mail setup with BizTalk BAM, without bringing down the entire BAM setup including the BAM Portal configuration, done thru BizTalk Configuration.
