one of my servers which is Windows server 2003 has became very old and it is shutting down once in a while. Our admin has been recieving alerts into his pager when it shuts down. That's not a problem. But, we want schedule an email alert into our outlooks also when the server shuts down. How can we do that?

If his pager is receiving notifications by using an email address like, etc, you can ask him to simply add another email address (maybe to a shared folder or a list) by adding a comma and the next email address so both of them get notifications.

The administrator probably has a monitoring service/software package that is triggering the pager notification. Ask them to add an e-mail notification that goes to your e-mail address that is checked by Outlook, or a mailing list that is distributed to the appropriate people.

+1 someone is monitoring the server to send out the pages, that someone or something could be anything, most likely a service or an application - reconfigure it to also send e-mails. This is not built-in. –  Oskar Duveborn May 19 '09 at 20:38
