Hi Jon,

but we do ...

read the description of the 'to' parameter


to (mandatory setting)

    Either an email address to send alerts to, or the name of a
    program to execute when an alert matches. To call a program, the
    first character of the to value must be a pipe symbol "|". The
    program will the be called whenever an alert matches, using the
    following 5 arguments (except if edgetrigger is 'yes'; see below):
    name-of-alert, target, loss-pattern, rtt-pattern, hostname. You can
    also provide a comma separated list of addresses and programs.
