I have a SQL Server Policy that forces databases (with exceptions) to be in Full Recovery. Issue is that facet doesn't allow for "on change:prevent" so i have it on a schedule. Is there a way to get an email anytime the policy fails?

You likely considered setting an alert based upon the message number associated with the failure and let this generate the email (via dbmail).
