Configuring Alerts and Notifications

There are several ways get your mail alerts to work:

  • Install and configure the MTA like Sendmail, Postfix, QMail or Exim;
  • Install and configure SSMTP instead of standard MTA;
After you are done with this you can use mail command to send email:
[root@localhost ~]# echo "This is a test mail" | mail -s "Test mail" <reciever-email>
