Paessler's PRTG Network Monitor supports SMART disk information reporting and 50 other "sensor" types. The first 10 sensors are free. It will email alerts. It is very configurable. I have used for a few clients, but not for the SMART sensor.

SpeedFan should be able to; it supports SMART and event triggered email alerts. The reason I say should is because I tried but couldn't get it to play nice with my email and support was non-existant, but for freeware, who's complaining, right? :)
