Do you have iLo or the HP management software? You should be able to trap events and send email alerts...

Ah so it is basically HP Systems Insight Management (SIM) i need to use. Let me see if it is free or do we need to buy anything?
I think they still do a free version (they used to anyway....)

You don't have to go the whole hog of using SIM for a single server, If the ProLiant support pack is installed look under Start/Programs/HP Management Agents/Event Notifier Config. Needs an SMTP relay to send through.

Oh, definitely SIM (or 3rd party monitoring tool) rather than local event notification service then.
