Dear Snakzzz,

for traps (or syslogs) the content available via notification placeholders is limited. Those placeholders are only resolved for the "Text with custom content" part (not for HTML emails.)

As custom content you can use %host and %trapmessages which include the last 20 traps which are at maximum 1 hour old.

(PRTG has no placeholder to collect all traps since last scanning interval.)
