Can this script be modified so that it shows all jobs that are running / executing over a certain threshold rather then a specific job.

When I ran this on 2008 R2, I received the error:

Msg 15281, Level 16, State 1, Procedure xp_sendmail, Line 1 SQL Server blocked access to procedure 'sys.xp_sendmail' of component 'SQL Mail XPs' because this component is turned off as part of the security configuration for this server. A system administrator can enable the use of 'SQL Mail XPs' by using sp_configure. For more information about enabling 'SQL Mail XPs', see "Surface Area Configuration" in SQL Server Books Online.

So I changed the stored proc to use Database Mail as opposed to SQLMail by editing the following, in order:

Changed @message to @body
Changed all references to @message_text to @message
Changed EXEC master..xp_sendmail to EXEC msdb..sp_send_dbmail

I feel pretty smart, as I'm a complete and total newb!
