Sooner or later, whether you're troubleshooting a server or just managing

you can configure Windows to send you an e-mail notification if the
service goes down. To do so, create the following script using Notepad:
Set objEmail = CreateObject("CDO.Message")
objEmail.From = firstname.lastname@example.org
objEmail.To = email@example.com
objEmail.Subject = objArgs(0) & " service is down"
objEmail.Textbody = "The service " & objArgs(0) & " has failed."
set objArgs = nothing
set objEmail = nothing
Save the script as Mail.vbs, and open the properties for the service
from the Services console. In one of the three drop-down lists, choose
the Run A File option. Click Browse to navigate to the Mail.vbs script
you just created. In the Command Line Parameters field, enter the
service name (without spaces) that you want passed to the script,
and click OK.
