Create a trigger and on update and delete. If you find the column is changed - send a mail.

The Below Artticle has the details of how to configure the Database Mail in SQL 2008.

http://blog.sqlauthority.com/2008/08/23/sql-server-2008-configure-database-mail-send-email-from-sql-database/


Once you set it up:

Include the Below command in the DELETE/UPDATE Trigger to send an email to the desired email id.


USE msdb
GO
EXEC sp_send_dbmail @profile_name='PinalProfile',
@recipients='test@Example.com',
@subject='Test message',
@query = 'select * from table where condition=''YES'''
@body='This is the body of the test message.
Congrates Database Mail Received By you Successfully.',
@attach_query_result_as_file = 0,
@query_result_width=5000


This link has the syntax for sample Delete/Update trigger:
