I'm new to Windows, having inherited a Win7 machine (which needs to stay Win7 due to custom drivers/hardware it has). How can I set it to send me notifications of important events (system problems, power loss/UPS kicks on, etc.) via email?


1 Open the event viewer

2 select the event you want to be notified

3 In the actions pane select Attach Task To This Event... and follow the wizard.

  • so the event has to have already occurred (in order to be found in the event viewer, I need to pull the plug of the UPS and let it generate an event on the Win7 system)? – mlevin77 Jun 19 at 20:13
  • I'm looking in the event viewer, where would I see a UPS power event? – mlevin77 Jun 20 at 1:39
