    Yes this can be done. Just configure the corresponding alert category to send notifications.
    Here's how you go about it.
    * Find the Alert type that is generated when BE waits for the tape. Typically this would be "Media Insert", "Media Intervention" or possibly "Media Overwrite". If you remember the last time this happened, look back in the event logs and see what type of alert Backup Exec wrote to the event logs. You could also skip this step and turn on notification for all 3 alerts I mentioned.
    * In the GUI, go into Tools/Alert Categories and for the alert type you found in the first step, check "Send notifications to selected recipients". Then select your recipients.
