When a system fails, you may wish to send alerts via Email.

ipSentry supports only SMTP email delivery (non authenticated)

In this example, we will configure the alert to send an email to support@mydomain.local from alerts@mydomain.local.  The alert will be sent through our internal SMTP server at and contain the current machine name and state in the subject as well as the message body.
