I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Maybe you could use the recovery tab in the services properties and set it to run a script or batch file when it stops?

What kind of notification are you looking for?  Does it have to be email, or could it be something like the net send command that would just pop up a message on your PC?

If you're looking for an email solution, this might help:

You would just write a batch file using the COPY command to move your txt file with the email information into the directory mentioned in the article at the link when the service stopped.
