SBS 2003 server alert notifications

We recently migrated our Exchange server 2003 that was built in to SBS 2003 to Office 365. Everything is working good but I don't receive the daily server report or any of the notifications or alerts that were once emailed to me thru exchange 2003. How do I get these reports properly emailed to me now? I don't see how to change it in Server Management.

Thank You for your help,
Graham

SBS relies on Exchange to mail the reports and depending on what you did post migration, you may have disabled Exchange or uninstalled it, meaning it can no longer email you.

If you can outline what you did, there may be a way to get the reports to you, but you are running an antique of an operating system and should move away from it as soon as you can ideally.

It has been awhile since I used sbs2003 so are you talking about sbs2003 server reports or Exchange's reports? You can check this link to find where log files are stored http://sbsessentials.blogspot.com/2011/04/sbs-log-files-file-locations.html and then if you want them emailed to you you can use a program like blat in a scheduled task. As Alan mentioned above if you have disabled or removed Exchange on SBS 2003 it will be unable to email them to you using the old setup.

Or you can install SMTP services (part of the available Windows elements) and relay the message to 365!

I realize we are well behind on our server solution which is one reason we went to Office 365 for email as it wasn't cost effective to completely upgrade since we are downsizing. I did disable Exchange after the migration but will look into your solutions and just monitor the logs more closely myself. Thank you guys!

If you opt for the SMTP Relay option, please have a look through this MS article as it should take the pain out of getting it working (he says optimistically):
