Database mail is configurable to include who can use the profiles/accounts created. You have the following security measures when you enable Database Mail: (Reference this ...

We had a crash dump that occurred yesterday and apparently broke the connection and wouldn't recognize the credentials. Restarting the agent and walla, it worked again.
Fundamentally, all of these except Data Masking provide security for the original data. With the correct privileges, you can access the original sensitive information.
