Solarwinds can be configured to send emails notifications.

What OS do you use ? if 2008 you can use event viewer it self to send email, start a program or display a message when an event occurred.

Yes solarwinds is not free. I thought that you have it already full installed.

Thanks vishalvasu, but it look at bit 'over the top'.  What I'm looking for is something like the free Solarwinds Exchange tool, but I need to be able to configure E-Mail alerts too.  I don't even mind if the tool is paid for (but not a lot of money!), I just don't want to install something as overkill of MOM or SCE.
