Customised Alerts

I had Customised Alerts set up for my two Campaigns with the alerts sent out daily to my email. Since last week they have stopped being sent out.  I cannot find anywhere in AdWords to check the Alerts or to change the alert settings. The Help is no help at all - have Alerts been removed from AdWords?

Thank you but why was I not told of this change - I have just wasted an hour trying to find the Alerts on the AdWords website. No help to your paying customers at all - very poor custermer service

Confusing - I am now subscribed to Feedburner - no mention of RSS feeds.  Thei really is not at all helpful to your general paying customers who are not computer geeks - we just want SIMPLE information in English (not Korean which happens often)
