Hello
I have 2003 sbs server.  I am trying to configure a low disk spaced alert  -- which will send me a message .  I followed microsoft instructions Performance logs and alerts and it does not send me a message.  I have a counter for the logical disk for free space. -- I also selected the send a network message box -- to administrator or ip address of server -- it did not send a message.

thanks!!

one more thing -- I just changed from sending a message to sending  a log to the application log in event viewer and it works.

I still don't know why the message will not show on the screeen ??

Thanks

I just don't understand why it will send me a console message

All i want to do is have the server display a message to me so i won't have to keep checking disk space on the server
