The NotifyEmail notification target takes much of its configuration from attributes on the <target> tag. The 3.1 version of the tools appears to not support attributes on the <target> tag inside of a notifier action. They can be entered in the XML by hand, however they do not appear to be maintained when changes are made using the graphical editor.
Since the NotifySqlTable is also configured via attributes on the <target> tag, it probably exhibits the same behavior (I haven't tested this one)....
Sample one-action ESB service below. If you do the following you'll see the behavior:
1) Copy and paste ESB config into the XML editor.
2) Switch to the Tree view and change pretty much anything (i.e. change the name of the action from "TestNotifier" to anything else) and save
3) Switch back to XML view and that attributes on the <target> tag are gone.
