My recommendation would be to use a power shell script (such as this one: http://www.youdidwhatwithtsql.com/monitoring-starting-services-with-powershell/113) to monitor whether the services you need are running. You can have the script to run regularly as a Windows scheduled task and automatically send you an e-mail if the service is not running.

There is also an open source tool called polymon that will do this: http://polymon.codeplex.com/.

There's a specific monitor for monitoring Windows services available here: http://polymon.codeplex.com/wikipage?title=Samples&referringTitle=Home.

To fully understand how the tool works, I do recommend taking a look at the documentation to configure it for your environment.

Hi,

Since you mentioned that you would like to receive email notification for specific application you should be able to configure those events specific to that application to get events triggered and get it as email alerts.
