That is great info, yeah the info needs to be real time our Help desk ticketing application gets lots of email request into a particular table and seem to break when it gets to 100 !! so it's so we can notify the Help desk Admin guy before it does break. I think a Trigger probably is best, the SendNoticationsHere do I then put in "email address" ?? is there any other thing I need to check? I am using SQL 2005 Enterprise 32bit.
