Install Team Foundation Power tools. A google search will bring up a link, currently this link to the latest version is at http://visualstudiogallery.msdn.microsoft.com/c255a1e4-04ba-4f68-8f4e-cd473d6b971f/

This has the ability to install Alerts Explorer so it will allow you to do what you would like.

Have you received any email alerts from TFS whatsoever? Seems like a TFS and your email server integration problem. In the TFS Administration Console. In the email Alert Setting I would assume you have correctly populated the SMTP Server setting and that your email server allows your TFS server to relay email messages?

yes we did this
i am sure of the SMTP
i am sure of the mail, the admin told me that the mail i want to use in the "From Mail" is added in the mail server.
i want to inform you that we are using Exchange Server 2007.

concerning this part:  I would assume you have correctly populated the SMTP Server setting and that your email server allows your TFS server to relay email messages?

as they told me that once they add the mail in the exhange server then you can use it to send email without the need of the username and password.

they also told me that by default Relay is disable by default

it is done.
to solve this issue you need to put the domain user that runs the windows service  "Visual Studio Team Foundation Background Job Agent" as ADMIN on the TFS server.

thanks
