Send HTML email

HTML content must be passed to sp_send_dbmail

SQL Server 2012
DECLARE @html VARCHAR(MAX);
SET @html = CONCAT
(
    '<html><body>',
    '<h1>Some Header Text</h1>',
    '<p>Some paragraph text</p>',
    '</body></html>'
)
SQL Server 2012
DECLARE @html VARCHAR(MAX);
SET @html =
    '<html><body>' +
    '<h1>Some Header Text</h1>' +
    '<p>Some paragraph text</p>' +
    '</body></html>';

Then use the @html variable with the @body argument. The HTML string can also be passed directly to @body, although it may make the code harder to read.

EXEC msdb.dbo.sp_send_dbmail 
    @recipients='recipient@someaddress.com',  
    @subject = 'Some HTML content',  
    @body = @html,  
    @body_format = 'HTML';  

Send results of a query

This attaches the results of the query SELECT * FROM Users and sends it to recipient@someaddress.com

EXEC msdb.dbo.sp_send_dbmail  
    @profile_name = 'The Profile Name',  
    @recipients = 'recipient@someaddress.com',  
    @query = 'SELECT * FROM Users',  
    @subject = 'List of users',  
    @attach_query_result_as_file = 1; 

Send simple email

This code sends a simple text-only email to recipient@someaddress.com

EXEC msdb.dbo.sp_send_dbmail  
    @profile_name = 'The Profile Name',  
    @recipients = 'recipient@someaddress.com',  
    @body = 'This is a simple email sent from SQL Server.',  
    @subject = 'Simple email'
