Hi,

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?

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

If his pager is receiving notifications by using an email address like 1234567890@att.com, 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.
