I'm running smokeping 2.4.2 on Centos 5.4 and i have some issues with
alerts and sending mail.
In fact, i've configure my smokeping config file like as below and i
don't receive any email.
In other hand I can see some Alerts notification in /var/log/messages.

I know maybe i'm just a noob but I didn't find any solution.

*** Alerts ***
to = alex.colonna at bjtmail.com
from = smokealert at bjtmail.com

type = rtt
pattern = >10
comment = routing messed up again ?

type = loss
pattern = ==0%,==0%,==0%,==0%,>0%,>0%,>0%
comment = suddenly there is packet loss

type = loss
# in percent
pattern = >0%,*12*,>0%,*12*,>0%
comment = loss 3 times  in a row

type = loss
# in percent
pattern = <100%,>50%,>50%
comment = host not responding
### If any host is at no packet loss (100%=good) and then going down
to more than 50% packet loss at lease 2 sequential checks

type = loss
# in percent
pattern = ==0%,==0%,==0%,==0%,>0%
comment = no reply

type = loss
pattern = ==S,>0%,>0%,>0%
comment = loss at startup
