I'm using Visual Studio 2010 and TFS Power tool to deals with mail alert notifications.
I can received a email each time the field "assigned to" is changed in any work item in my Team Project, which is good.
But I want something else : put the guy concerned in copy for each mail. So if a tasks is assigned to Mr X, I want that me and Mr X. recieved a mail.
Is that possible with the Alert Explorer from Power Tools ? Or is they're any other way to do it ? (I don't want Mr X configure something in his computer, it should be 100% transparent for him)
Thanks a lot !

I am afraid this scenario is not possible out of the box.
Mr X can however subscribe to alerts for all work items assigned to him. So, Mr X will be notified by a separate alert that a work item has been assigned to him.
However, if this is crucial for you, consider building a custom solution using TFS API.
See this thread where a similar solution has already been proposed, in my opinion its not really worth the effort. http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/tfsworkitemtracking/thread/4899a92e-a259-4958-afa9-439903a2cee8/
