FIX: Incorrect mail profile is displayed in the Alert System page in SQL Server 2008 R2

Extended support for SQL Server 2005 ends on April 12, 2016

If you are still running SQL Server 2005 after April 12, 2016, you will no longer receive security updates and technical support. We recommend upgrading to SQL Server 2014 and Azure SQL Database to achieve breakthrough performance, maintain security and compliance, and optimize your data platform infrastructure. Learn more about the options for upgrading from SQL Server 2005 to a supported version here.

Microsoft distributes Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 fixes as one downloadable file. Because the fixes are cumulative, each new release contains all the hotfixes and all the security updates that were included with the previous SQL Server 2008 R2 update release.
SYMPTOMS
When you open the Alert System page of the SQL Server Agent Properties dialog box in SQL Server 2008 R2, the Alert System page might incorrectly display that the Mail profile property is set to the first profile.

Notes
  • The value of the Mail profile property is applied if you click OK on the SQL Server Agent Properties dialog box. Therefore, the Mail profile property may be inadvertently set to the first profile.
  • The profiles are in alphabetical order in the combo box for the Mail profile property on the Alert System page.


CAUSE
This issue occurs because the combo box for the property always selects the first element as the item that appears selected.
