I made sure my server email settings look right, but when trying to test the email function with:

source="/var/log/messages" host="devrep" |head 5 | sendemail to="" sendresults=true

I get:

command="sendemail", [Errno -2] Name or service not known while sending mail to:

(form is stripping my email addr btw)

Any idears?

okay, so my mail server was wrong. 🙂
I updated it and the command succeeds, but I still don't receive an email. Is there a log file I can look to for hints on this?

got it. once the email server (and my local outlook rules) were updated, it works. sorry for the false alarm. 🙂
