      It’s the same problem I have now. Sending email via command line works but not in Zabbix. Did you come up with a solution or a way to trace where the problem is?


      • tomas says:

        may the problem be that in command line i need to add “./” before “zabbix-sendmail “Danger” “Temperatura muy alta! Alerta!”” to work? In Action log figures as sent but didnt got to inbox…
