One problem with email notifications is it usually sends too many emails. Errors frequently happen in series. For example, a temporarily issue with network can result in hundreds repetitive emails. In result an email notification designed as a “VIP” notification is downgraded to the “annoying” status.
This email flooding could be mitigated with this solution.
A Sample demonstrates using the emails for sending notification in case of failed messages.

It has all solution artifacts and can be used in real-life projects.
