Resource limit reached emails/status changes messages are as expected from the config. Check succeeded emails, however, are as follows:

Subject: HOST: Resource limit succeeded at DATE

Monit alert
on internal: 'HOST' cpu user usage check succeeded [current cpu user usage0.0%]

I am running Monit 5.0 beta 7.

The configuration is OK.

The mail-format is shared for both failure and success mails - the same function is used to deliver both events which expands the mail-format template the same way.

I have tested now using cvs bits (upcoming monit-5.0) and it works fine. I used following template:

set mail-format
 { from: address@hidden

Then i killed one monitored service so monit sent failure event, restarted the service and sent success event ... both emails came with correct template.

What problem exactly you see? How the failure emails differ from success emails when it comes to mail-format template and where it doesn't match the expaction? What is the monit version?
