if you want monit to be able to send email alerts directly, you need to configure monit to use some mailserver as transport agent (basically something like "post office" where monit should drop the email for delivery).

You can set it with the "set mail server" statement - for example if your exam is running locally and listens on port, the configuration will be:

set mailserver

I have some VPS set up with outbound only exim (that's all I need, and don't know much about smtp/exim/sendmail).
I'm getting this error in the monit log:
[BST Oct 19 09:40:33] error    : No mail servers are defined -- see manual for 'set mailserver' statement

But I haven't really a clue what I should be doing with the set mailserver configuration. Any pointers much appreciated.
