The Simple Email alert sends a dynamically formatted email to one or more users that displays the Date, Time, Monitor Name, Monitor Type, Monitor Address, Alert Name, Reason for Alert, and any custom data such as that trapped by Information alerts.
Use the Simple Email alert to:
- Format and deliver a text email message using data generated by ipMonitor when the alert is triggered on behalf of a monitor or group or monitors
- Send custom failure notifications, recovery notifications, and information messages using text and ipMonitor tokens
The Simple Email alert supports ipMonitor alert tokens, message formatting from a list of options (such as To, From, and Message Body), and individual body content configuration for failed, recovery, and information messages. Additionally, the alert supports ipMonitor alert tokens and an options SMTP relay server to ensure that email alerts are delivered to the correct users.
ipMonitor does not store the email alert messages. If a mail server is not available to receive the email alert, it will be discarded. You can use the Optional SMTP relay server field located in Server Settings to ensure that email alerts are successfully delivered to the intended users. You can access Server Settings in the Configuration tab.
