I suggest you ...

Allow emails to be sent based upon alert priority.

i.e. only send an email for alerts with a Medium or High priority.

    Hi all,

    We have looked into this recently, and have run into quite a few design and engineering challenges that you would not expect from such a seemingly straightforward feature. We are hoping to do this in the future, but I’m afraid I can’t really give you an ETA.

    Clearly this is a popular request, and we are very keen to get it right. Please bear with us as we figure this one out. Your votes and comments continue to be much appreciated!

        This would definitey by useful - low priority might just go to me as info, but medium and high to the main support desk to deal with.

        Would really like to see this implemented, be much nicer to configure this within sql monitor rather than having to use another product. I would also really like the ability to send email alerts only when an alert has been recorded a predefined number of times in a given time frame. (80 deadlocks within 3 mins - for example)

        This is my number one feature request. I need more granularity for email alerting because this products best selling point is the ability to be notified of certain critical issues. I am a DBA of many server installations, yet this product becomes more cumbersome and less useful with each license I purchase...
