the idea is that you at first put the line

host = DYNAMIC

(without any password) to the target section, and then run 

# smokeping --email

which generates a password, inserts it (or rather a hash of it)
into the config file and sends the agent script containing the
password to the 'email' address.

If you already did this and 'smokeping --email' told you that it sent
the script, there might be something wrong with your sendmail setup.
You could to try the 'mailhost' variable to get smokeping to send the
message straight to a smarthost without using the local sendmail.
