I have been using Nagios, I took over it from a team member who installed it, so in order to take it further, I want to try and send mails to the respective email ids whenever the service or host goes down. Where can I start from?

Software/Hardware used:
nagios installed onVM machine, accessed through remote desktop

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

First, you need to make sure that the e-mail account you wish to use to receive alerts is properly defined in the contacts configuration file (contacts.cfg), which is usually under /usr/local/nagios/etc/objects/.

Also, you will probably need mailx/postfix or similar packages to be able to send e-mail alerts, and you will probably need to modify your notification commands configuration file (/usr/local/nagios/etc/objects/commands.cfg)
