  • Hello Mike,

    In this scenario, you need to monitor the contents of any incoming E-mail in a mailbox. If I misunderstand the requirment, please let me know.

    By design, SCOM server cannot do this as a built-in function. You may need a script to read the contents in the E-mails and then transfer them to the SCOM server for monitoring.

    Here is a thread which disscussed the same requirement, which I think could help you:

    Can Operations Manager generate an alert off of an email?
