Thanks for this link, but I've changed the default mailformat already. 
It looks like this:

set mail-format {
  from: address@hidden
  subject: $SERVICE $EVENT at $DATE
  message: $EVENT $SERVICE at $DATE on $HOST

But that doesn't solve my problem :-(.

The question is, what causes the last line in the example above:

Event: 'foo.tld' failed, cannot open a connection to

I think this can't be triggered via the mail-format settings. This line 
is insertet with a line break in the alert and this line break and the 
following text is ignored by the mail2sms gateway. So the sms looks like 

Connection test failed foo.tld at Fri, 25 Mar 2005 05:29:48 +0100 on

The line with the event gets lost :-(. I have to avoid line breaks in 
the alerts, that would solve the problem. Or 

BTW.: The $ACTION variable doesn't work with my monit version too :-(. 
It causes a syntax error. Is this a known problem and is it fixed in 
newer releases?
