Set some Parameters there, that will be used as default setting on frontend when user setup alerts:

Go to Extensions -> JMailAlerts component and edit your Alert template.


Place [jma_latestads_djcf] tag in the template editor wherever you want the latest DJ-Classifieds ads to be displayed.



Configuration for a front-end user is even quicker

First you need to setup new menu link that will point to alerts setting so each user on frontend can setup their own preferences and choose from which categories they want to get notifictions. 

1. Click "Add new menu item" (in our case it's main menu, but of course it can be any menu)
