How to Reduce the SCOM OpsMgr eMail Alert Storm

How to Reduce the SCOM OpsMgr eMail Alert Storm? Personally, I don’t prefer to install and enable the SCCM management pack on the SCOM servers because of the fear of email alerts!!  

It is very common to see hundreds of emails a day generated by SCOM and most of them are informational etc. Is there any way to reduce SCOM email alerts/notification storm?

Savision’s  Live Maps Unity  will help us to notify only when really necessary and provide a URL in the notification to the root cause details. Isn’t really cool?

Dennis Rietvink published an article that explains how you can configure SCOM alert notifications to include a URL to the Live Maps Unity service map in an email.
