IMAP Monitoring



Hello everybody,

I have added an IMAP sensor and can monitor incoming emails from a specific sender with a specific term. But I don't get an email through PRTG when an email comes from the specific sender. I only get warning on web interface. Can someone help me with this please?

thank you very much

Did you configure your E-Mail Notifications in PRTG already correctly?

To configure Notifications you'll first need to add Notification Templates at "Setup > Account Settings > Notification Templates". Here you can define who and how should be notified. After that you can define Notification Triggers at the "Notification Triggers" tab in your device tree. Here you can define when and how often you want to get notifications. 

For further information, kindly take a look at these articles:


If this is configured correctly, you may get further information at the "log" tab of PRTG.
