  • Hi Jacey,

    In order for you to receive the active alerts you will need to subscribe to the alerts the steps are listed below

    1. Create and enable a notification channel in ur case u will create an smtp channel which will include the name of the exchange hub transport server in ur organization, do note u can use the administrators address as the return address (this infers the senders address i actual fact)

    the steps are pasted below

    1.Log on to the computer with a user account that is a member of the Operations Manager Administrator role for the Operations Manager 2007 R2 management group.

    2.     In the Operations console, click the Administration view.

    3.     In the Navigation tree, under Notifications, right-click Channels. Click New channel and then point to E-mail.

    4.     Type a name for the channel, such as SMTP channel and optionally provide a description. Click Next.

    5.     In the SMTP servers area, click Add to display the Add SMTP server dialog box.

    6.     Type the FQDN of an SMTP server, type the port number, select the authentication method used by the SMTP server, and then click OK.

    Note
     

    You can add one or more additional servers to act as backup servers. If the primary SMTP server is unavailable, notifications are sent through the secondary server.
    7.     Type the Return Address that should appear on e-mail notifications, and then in the Retry interval list, select the number of minutes to wait before trying to resend a notification to the primary SMTP server. Click Next.

    8.     In the Default e-mail notification format area, specify the E-mail subject and E-mail message with wildcard parameters such as $Alert Source$ and $Alert Description$, and then specify the encoding type. You can click Placeholder for a full list of available variables.
    If you receive notifications with missing or garbled text in the subject lines, select Generate subject line with no encoding (use if notification e-mails contain malformed subject lines. This option tells Operations Manager to send no encoding in the subject line; instead, the encoding from the SMTP server is used.

    5.     On the Schedule page, click one of the option buttons to choose the schedule for sending notifications to this subscriber. The default is to always send notifications. Click Next.

    6.     In the Addresses window, click Add to open the Subscriber address dialog box.

    7.     Type an identifying name for the subscriber address, such as Work E-mail, and then click Next.
