Email Alerts are not received...

In one of application, Email alerts are sent using SQL sp_send_dbmail stored procedure. Email alerts were working properly, but suddenly noticed email alerts are not received.

To troubleshoot the issue, first I checked the msdb.dbo.sysmail_event_log table using the below query.

SELECT log_id, event_type, log_date, description, process_id, mailitem_id, account_id, last_mod_date, last_mod_user
log_date DESC

If there is any error, you should see records with the event_type value as error.
In my case there are records with event_type value as error, and the description value for those records is same as below

The mail could not be sent to the recipients because of the mail server failure. (Sending Mail using Account 3 (2018-02-01T10:41:27). Exception Message: Cannot send mails to mail server. (The SMTP server requires a secure connection or the client was not authenticated. The server response was: Authentication required).  )

SSRS table border double is not working...

I wanted to add double line for the bottom of the each row in a SSRS table. But when I set the Border Style for the Bottom of the Row as Double and preview the report, I was unable to see the double line at the bottom of any row.

Actually the reason was even though it was applied, it was not visible. To fix it just change the Border Style for the Top to None while keeping the Border Style for the Bottom as Double. Then increase the Border Width for the Bottom as 2pt. Then try to preview the report. I was able to get the double line by setting the border width as 2pt.
But if still you are not getting it, try to increase the border width for the bottom as 2.5pt or 3pt. Then you should be able to see the double line at the bottom of each row.
