Auto-generate emails based on specific DFS event IDs

I'd like to configure an alert for my DFS replicated file system.  Simply, whenever the server generates a DFS Replication Event ID 4412 (that denotes using the conflict algorithm), I'd like to be emailed or alerted in some manner.  These events are too important to hide in the event viewer alone.

Is there a simple way to do this?

Much appreciated -

Matt

Set up an alert using Performance monitor tool. Configure this alert as close as possible to your requirements. Don't forget to start this alert when you are done so it can begin to monitor.

Thanks for the help, and I can see how to set up an alert to trigger when a DFS Replicated Folder conflict file is generated...

But, is there an action to configure an auto email for such events?  All I can see is 'Send a network message', 'Run this program', Log an entry in the application event log'...

The email for notification is key.

Thanks - Matt
