I just saw the link to ask you a question and here is mine. Admin do you know of a way I can configure Vista to let me know if a specific error or event happens while I am AFK?
I hear Vista can hit me on my Blackberry when an event occurs and it's suppose to be native through the OS. Is this true and how can I configure it?I know they said its in but I be damned if I can't find it. Hook a fellow admin up!

You sure can JayDee! And not only is it pretty simple - you can use any email client not only a Crackberry - check it.
- Now you can attach a task to any event. Navigate through System Tools / Event Viewer / Windows Logs / Application.
- Now select an event - then look to the rightmost pane and click “Attach Task to This Event.”
- Name it whatever you want and put in a description, click through to the next step, then in the Action step, you’ll see the “Send an e-mail” option.
To make use of this, Windows Vista's Event Viewer has something called the Task Scheduler Wizard and provides you with a bunch of choices for actions to attach to each event.
Anyone out there using this already? Questions? Comments? Just blaze!
