i am new to nagios so please be kind .
i have a strange issue,
i have a running instance of nagios (latest versions), it monitors 6 hosts and 26 services, and when a host/service fails it send email notification to a few users. this is ok, additionally it tries to send email notification to the email address “$@zion.domain.local” and of course this fails because the user does not exist,
i searched the configuration file and the database and i do not find that setting.
i would appreciate any information that can lead to solving this situation.
some additional info.
