I am back to blogging after a vacation..!
This time I had an issue with TFS Alert not working properly.
You need to make sure that you have done the following setting properly:
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 Team Foundation Server\Web Services\Services\Web.config
<add key="emailNotificationFromAddress" value="TFSAdmin@Company.com" />
<add key="smtpServer" value="ExchangeServerName" />
Now you need to reset IIS or recycle the pool that "Services" application is linked with.
If you face any issues, there are some good debugging links:

Next time I will blog on how to make use of events raised by TFS.
