SQL SERVER: Configure notification to send an email when JOB fails

In my previous post, T SQL to display Job history, I have mentioned to get list with the job statuses. One of my developer asked me to share, How to configure Notification to send an email when Job fails. Developers problem is, he is getting empty dropdown while configuring notification as shown in below figure:

SQL Yoga Configure notification to send an email when JOB fails #1
Here, This dropdown contains list of Operators, so we have to create operators to whom we can send a notification email. Its very simple to configure operator, see below:

SQL Yoga Configure notification to send an email when JOB fails, create Operator #2
Now, we have created Operator, so, lets set it up for the job as below:

SQL Yoga Configure notification to send an email when JOB fails #3
Now, Mail will be send to the email specified in “ErrorEmails” operator.

Note: Make sure to Configure Database email to send an email from the SQL SERVER.
