Error Event Notification via Email

I was wondering if there is a way to setup Win Server 2003 (or use third party program) to send an Email notification when there is an Error generated in the Windows Event Log.

Thank you very much.  I read the thread and it appears that Eventtriggers.exe is the way to go but had a few questions about using Eventtriggers.exe and was hoping that you have the answers.

1) Once you "create" an eventtrigger, does that trigger remain active till it is "deleted"? Or does it get purged/deleted once the event has been triggered, and/or the computer has been restarted!

2) To have eventtriggers.exe execute the task specified, in this case to send an email, can I just ask it to execute a VB script to send the email or is there a better way to generate the email?

Once you create eventtrigger it remains active until you manualy delete it.

Use Blat for Windows, command line utility to send mails: http://www.blat.net/194/

I'm not a scripting expert but you should take a look at this script if yu are looking for scripted solution:  http://www.computerperformance.co.uk/Logon/VBScript/eventtriggers.htm

The Evnt Triggers that I create with eventtriggers.exe, do they run as a service?  In other words, does it remain active after I Log Out?

"Once you create eventtrigger it remains active until you manualy delete it." <-- reboot, or log off should not interfere with created triggers.

Thanks.
