based on your sample

check program script with path "/usr/local/etc/monit/scripts/"
  start program "/usr/local/etc/monit/scripts/ start"
  stop program "/usr/local/etc/monit/scripts/ stop"
  if 2 restarts within 10 cycles then alert
  if status != 0 then restart

and monitrc with "set daemon 60", the daemon check cycle time.

And your question

I got a "Status failed Service script" mail and after a minute
the "Status succeeded Service script" mail from my local mail server.

My suggestion, check your mail server or the cycle time.
