Is it possible to show IP addresses in the notification e-mail?



When the Network Monitor sends out a email notification you can specify the text to show the device (%device), status (%status), name (%name) and so on, but I want to show the IP address as well; is this possible?

I've tried things like %ip and %ipaddress but it doesn't show the IP address of the device

The %host variable shows the IP address or DNS name of the device that triggered the event.

For a complete list of variables, please see What placeholders can I use with PRTG?
