HI

You can configure email notifications when you save a search as an alert. You can also configure email notifications for when editing an alert's actions. The procedure is the same in both cases.

After running a search, save the search as an alert and configure email notification settings.

1) Run the search.
2) Select **Save As > Alert.**
3) Provide a Title and other information about the alert.
4) From the Add Actions menu, select Send email.

   5) Specify the following:

Specify a comma-separated list of email recipients.

Enforcement of priority depends on your email client.

You should not send emails to example.com, use your actual email address to test.
