I have the following script running as a scheduled task (has been running for over a year)

(note: computer/email names changed for security)

Set objComputer = GetObject("WinNT://test123,computer")
objComputer.Filter = Array("Service")
            Dim iMsg
            Dim iConf
            Dim Flds
            Dim strHTML
            Dim strSmartHost

            Const cdoSendUsingPort = 2
            StrSmartHost = "mail.test.local"

            set iMsg = CreateObject("CDO.Message")
            set iConf = CreateObject("CDO.Configuration")

            Set Flds = iConf.Fields


            With Flds
                  .Item("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/sendusing") = cdoSendUsingPort
                  .Item("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/smtpserver") = strSmartHost
                  .Item("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/smtpconnectiontimeout") = 10
                  .Update
            End With
For Each aService In objComputer
      select case aService.Name
            case "MSSQLSERVER"
                  if aService.Status <> 4 then
      
                        With iMsg
                              Set .Configuration = iConf
                              .To = "IT@elgin.com"
                              .From = "Webdbadmin@elgin.com"
                              .Subject = "The SQL Server on test123 is not running!"
                              .TextBody = "SQL Server is not running. ."
                              .Send
                        End With
            
                  end if

                  end select
      
Next

      Set iMsg = Nothing
      Set iConf = Nothing
      Set Flds = Nothing


We started receiving the message saying it is not running when it is

Any one have ideas as to why the false negative?

I suggest you add more areas to the Topic (and tags) as this is not (purely) a MS SQL Server question in my opinion.

Does this script run locally on the SQL server, or does it run on a remote machine?

Also, it could be that the service had issues, the email was sent, the issues resolved themselves, then somebody checked on the server and found no issues.
