Built into the OS , I dont think so BUT you can use the task schedular for individual events.

Open the Task Scheduler MMC, start the Create a Basic Task Wizard, give it a name and select on the event trigger. Set the Log , Source and Event ID to to what you want monitored , click next and select "Send and e-mail" click next and specify your e-mail settings etc.

There are some good free monitoring tools available. OpManger (Free for 10 devices)
SpiceWorks is another good one.

In my opinion as long as its a mail server with the ability to send mail you can use it. It does not have to be exchange

simply put , any smtp server will do the trick, if it requires authentication then you will obviously need that to. but no it does not have to be exchange

I havent done this inside of windows but I know it has a built in smtp server that you can use. Add/Remove programs or install features section.
You may also wanna try the tools listed below and see if it works for you.
