Escalations vs default contact groups


is there a way to do away with default contact groups on hosts and services and just use escalations? i currently have a “none” contact group with a dud e-mail address as the default contact group, but its cluttering up our notification log. i am gearing up for a more self service implementation of notification management within my orginization and default contact groups don’t really fit the model.



heh, nevermind, i answerd my own question, i had neglected to setup my none contact so that it overwrode the defaults in such a way that it would never actually be contacted.
