My vCentre is currently on SQL Express which does not have an SQL Agent to email stats.

Is there an alternative to get email alerts setup?

I'm looking to monitor database growth

How many Hosts and VMs do you have ?

once at 10GB Express will stop, and vCenter Service will stop and abort, and terminate.

SQL Express is too small, for that infrastructure

I would recommend you use SQL FULL or switch to the appliance, you will exceed 10GB, and have to constantly clear the tasks and events tables.

I'm second Andrew.
Btw, SQLMail should never be used since it has security issues.
