In IMAP Sensor, can I include the subject line of msg triggering alert?



I am setting up Imap sensors to monitor backup status. Since each backup has it's own message that is sent to the monitoring mailbox, rather than set up 50 separate sensors, if there is a way to include the subject line of the message that triggers the alert/warning status, I could use just a single imap sensor.

Is there a way to pass the imap mail message subject line along to the warning/alert status message?

thank you very much for your KB-Post. I'm very much afraid while you can use the %message-Placeholder, this will only forward the last mail during the current scanning interval of a IMAP Sensor. If you need the individual mails, it would indeed be necessary to use separate sensors.

best regards.
