    [RESOLVED] No Email-notifications

    Hello!
    A little introduction to my problem:
    I am just a trainee and my boss ordered me to look for a monitoring system. After about 2 weeks of searching and thinking I got to Shinken and set up my first Shinkenserver, also my first Linux-Server (Debian Squeeze 6.0.5).
    All after the 10-min. Quickstart-Guide and everything works fine. I defined some new Hosts and Services and all checks are working.
    Then I started working on email notification, and sadly I just don't get it to work.

    I hope that you can help me.
    My contacts.cfg looks like this:
    Code:
    define contact{
        use                   generic-contact
        contact_name              admin
        email                  support@semase.de
        pager                  0600000000  ; contact phone nu$
        password              *********
        is_admin               1
        notificationways         email
    }
    
    define notificationway{
        notificationway_name      email
        service_notification_period   24x7
        host_notification_period    24x7
        service_notification_options  w,u,c,r,f
        host_notification_options    d,u,r,f,s
        service_notification_commands  notify-service-by-email
        host_notification_commands   notify-host-by-email
    }


    If you need more information or logfiles to help me please tell me (and maybe also where I can find them, because I know as much about Linux as about Shinken(nothing))

    Thanks for the help!

    Look at your local mail service, like postfix. So look at /var/log/maillog

    Just a tip about MTA.....
    I don't like to install postifx just for sending smtp emails...it takes a lot of memory for do nothing..

    If you have your own MTA, try SSMTP, this only sends with SMTP format and does not open any socket for others use

    bye!
