Have a look at your contact definition, at the service and host
notification commands - look those up in your commands.cfg (or whatever
your command file is) and that should point to a command_line that sends
the e-mail (using /bin/mail or similar.) It may even be a shell
script. Either way, we'd need to see your command definition to try and
work out what's going on here.

But it always says PROBLEM in the email I receive. Maybe that's the problem? Is there a way to set it to a different string? Or is that opening up a can of worms?
