Thanks for the reply Niall.

If notifications are chargeable, how am I going to licence it? I don't see
any management pack that explicitly licenses the alerts. Does this also mean
that I cant send alerts from db console if I don't have any management

Also, Could you please redirect me to any link that mentions that
" notifications are a chargeable item".I don't remember this being specified
in licensing doc though. May be I have to read it again. :(

Thanks a lot.
