I have configured and tested the database mail. That all works. I configured SQL Server agent to use the profile I created. I restarted SQL Server agent. When I configure the job and go to notifications and check email the drop down is still blank.

What am I missing?

Under SQL Server Agent, you need to go to the Operators category and add a new Operator (with an email address). You will then be able to select it in the notifications drop down.
