I am trying to set up e-mail notification on services / hosts. Here’s what my config file looks like:
contact_name nagiosadmin ; Short name of user
use generic-contact ; Inherit default values from generic-contact template (defined above)
alias Nagios Admin ; Full name of user
email firstname.lastname@example.org ; <<***** CHANGE THIS TO YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS ******
Under notifications, it says notification-service-by-email “ran”, and for the correct contact. Do any of other config files need to be changed? Also, where do I go to set up the smtp information so that the notification actually gets sent out? I am unsure if it is something within nagios, or on my machine, in which that case, I am running Ubuntu 7.10.
