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 generated by SCOM, most of which are informational, etc. Is there any way to reduce SCOM email alerts/notification storms?

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