Setting up an Alert to monitor Mirrored Drives

Does anyone know of a way to set up an alert either with Windows health monitor or whatever so that:

When a dynamically mirrored drive managed by Windows 2000 Server (disk managment) goes offline, to send some sort of alert, preferably email.

Right now there is no type of alert besides the Event logs and a visual one which is fine if you're sitting at the server.  But the other day one of the drives in the mirrored set failed redundancy and removed itself from the mirror when the secondary IDE channel went haywire.

I've combed through the health monitors and I've looked at the Logical and Physical Disks section, but those performance alerts may not be exactly what I want and I'm not about to go pulling the mirrored drive off the mirror to test it because it took 8 hours to regenerate the mirror :P

Thanks,

You can use the Windows System Resource Manager (WSRM) to eg let you send an email to warn you:

It logs events and can optionally send an email message to the administrator
