Hi,

You can give a shot with this free tools.

Top 5 Free Microsoft Tools for Active Directory Health
but might a lot of manual process and time to time administrative overhead as well.

I however recommend, Operation Manager as a recommended Solution.

You can either try Microsoft Operation's Manager like
Microsoft Operations Manager
3rd Part OpsManager
Monitoring Active Directory Using OpsManager

Try Evaluating above solutions and if it fits your bill and administrative needs the go for it.

Hope that helps :)

Basically, AD health comes down to three main tasks: installation and deployment, maintenance and break-fix repairs when something goes wrong. For step-wise guidance about : How to check AD health, please go through this well described link : http://searchmidmarketsecurity.techtarget.com/tip/How-to-perform-an-Active-Directory-health-check
Though, MS-Library also has a good opinion over this point which explains in detail of all benefits by end users as well as for administrators. You can check here to gather complete information.
Moreover, as you want automatic AD health report over your email, you can have also a look at this utility (http://www.activedirectorymanagement.org/) which I hope, would be a good choice for you.
