Hi,
I have trying to get my nagios alerts sorted out but i keep get blank anyway here is what i want to do.
config

define command{
command_name notify-service-by-mail
command_line /usr/bin/printf “%b” “***** Nagios ***\n\nNotification Type: $NOTIFICATIONTYPE$\n\nService: $SERVICEDESC$\nHost: $HOSTALIAS$\nAddress: $HOSTADDRESS$\nState: $SERVICESTATE$\n\nDate/Time: $LONGDATETIME$\n\nAdditional Info: $HOSTNOTES$\n\n$SERVICEOUTPUT$\n\nURL: $HOSTNOTESURL$" | /bin/mail -s " $NOTIFICATIONTYPE$ Service Alert: $HOSTALIAS$/$SERVICEDESC$ is $SERVICESTATE$ **” $CONTACTEMAIL$
}

}
and the
office.cfg
