If your mailserver running on the same machine stops to accept connections or timeouts, you can use external mailserver (not localhost) to prevent this and deliver mail immediately. If delay is no problem, then you can enable event queue in Monit which will make Monit to retry alert delivery.

For example:

  set eventqueue basedir /var/monit

Excuse me, I got the following error messages in the monit log

[EST Dec  2 14:22:37] error    : Sendmail: error receiving data from the mailserver 'localhost' -- Resource temporarily unavailable
[EST Dec  2 14:22:38] error    : Aborting event

Currently, I cannot receive email sent from monit when resource limit is exceeded.
May I ask what may I do to the mail server to solve this problem ?

Thank you very much for your help
