    Nagios emails again

    I have emails coming out of nagios using postfix into a pop3 account so I can then use the pop3 polling of my little helpdesk to add them as requests but I get multiple alerts everytime a host/service that is down is polled I guess.

    I want to get one email that's turned into a request when a host or service is down.

    Any thoughts?

    Increase the repeat notification time to something outrageous.

    In the config files, you will have set notification intervals. I believe this is how often the system is told to email the address when there is something to report.

    According to the help in Groundwork setting the notification interval to 0 means only one notification will be sent out per state change.
