SQL Server 2005 backup
I have several maintenance plans setup in SQL 2005, but if the backup fails I am not alerted in any manner how can I fix this? Will I need to script something or is this a built in feature?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Edit the job under the SQL Agent in SQL Server Management Studio. Select the Notifications tab, and set it up to email you on failure.

You’ll need to setup an operator within the SQL Agent which points to your email address (or to a distribution list) first.
