How does your config look like? Look at this example:

+ lossdetect
type = loss
pattern = ==0%,==0%,==0%,>5%,>5%,>5%
comment = dropping more than 5% packets

+ noloss
type = loss
pattern = >5%,>5%,>5%,==0%,==0%,==0%
comment = packet loss back to normal

First jumps in when packet loss is >5% 3times and had been 0% at least
3times before. Second just is the opposite. I only get mails when something
changes according to the rules above.
