Let’s check how you can configure and send Notifications for Noncompliant Devices in Intune. In this post, you will also learn how to create notifications in Intune Admin portal for Noncompliant Devices.
Compliance policy configuration is an important design decision while managing devices with Intune. Intune compliance policies are the first step of the protection before providing access to corporate applications, along with Conditional Access policies.
By default, when Intune detects a device that isn’t compliant, Intune immediately marks the device as noncompliant. Azure AD Conditional Access then blocks the device. When a device isn’t compliant, Intune allows you to add actions for noncompliance, which gives you the flexibility to decide what to do
Intune Compliance Policy for device help to protect company data; the organization needs to make sure that the devices used to access company apps and data comply with certain rules. The default compliance policy rules include password/PIN, Encryption, and more.
Starting with Intune Service release 2209, IT admins can create a custom message and include information in the notification about how to report an unrecognized device. Intune delivers enrollment notifications via email or push notifications, Configure Device Enrollment Notifications In Intune.

does this work for anyone? because I do not receive any email with the “email preview” button or or devices registered with my email
The added email recipients receive notification automatically once they click on Email Preview. It may take some time to deliver the emails.
Hi Jitesh – Is it possible to send email notification to Admin instead of the END users?
Hi Ravi, You can specify the email ID of Admins whom you want to be part of email recipients. The end users will receive an email when you configure the option, along with Admins.
