monit doesn't allow to turn off the recovery event currently. It should provide the feedback that the service is up again so the admin can sleep in peace again ;) Maybe we can make the recovery alarm optional in the future monit versions.

You can also use some workarounds, such as set the mail server or client-side filter to remove the recovery message.

I _love_ monit. Its been very handy and its saved my butt more than a few times.

Recently I set it up to email my blackberry with a specially formatted
message for critical failures, so that it "pages" me and I can
manually verify that everything is OK. Its great, except for the fact
that I end up actually getting two alerts - one when the problem
occurs and one when its cleared. Thats kind of annoying.

Is there any way to set up a particular alert to only be sent on the
failure state and not the recovery state?

I'm running monit 4.8.1 on Debian.
