Email Alerts and File Sensors




I'm trying to get an email alert for a file sensor to show "red" (alert) rather than "green"

I want the sensor to error if the newest file in a folder is over 24 hours old.

The sensor emails me but the alert is green.

I'm using the threshold trigger for this.

Any ideas?

Could you provide screenshots of the complete sensor configuration and the notification config?
