Couldn't resolve probably means that it wasn't able to translate the
name (like to an IP address (like
Either set the IP address of the smtp server instead of the name or fix
your DNS settings.

There should be a line like this in the file "/etc/resolv.conf":


The IP should of course point to a real nameserver that let's you do
recursive queries.

Thanks a lot Aleksander.

Although I am still not receiving the email alerts, I managed to have the "accepted" mailserver command. It seems I am behind a huge firewall and this server only works locally, that was why they were asking me to use POP to send the alerts.

I guess the only other way would be to open up a port and specify this in the mailserver right?

I dont think they would like to do that.

I will keep you posted if I make any progress on this one.

Thanks again!
