comment Update strings for all cmdexec Jobs
@AaronBertrand Indirectly, sure. But running a trace you'll see it's really calling msdb.dbo.sp_update_jobstep. And yes, that stored proc does update the msdb.dbo.sysjobsteps table but there are a handful of other checks that the stored procedure call does. I agree with you, Aaron, but I'll always choose the "API" route instead of direct table DML.

Excellent, that is good to hear. PowerShell is becoming a requirement (in my honest opinion) for managing large environments. At the very least, it makes tasks like this relatively simply to accomplish. Good luck, and if you have any questions feel free to ask.

comment In what data type should I store an email address in database?
Agreed, if it could be that then size it accordingly. That was the point I was trying to make in my answer.
