Hello, I have set up icinga2, icingaweb2 and icinga director on 10.10.x.7, and everything works well. I have a web server (iredmail) on 10,10.x.8, which also works without problems. What do I need to do in order to instruct icinga to send alerts etc. through my webserver? Obviously it’s not localhost, it is a separate (virtual) machine. Thanks in advance for any advice!

/etc/icinga2/scripts you’ll find two bash scripts for notification (one for host and one for service notification) you coud use. This uses
The rest is how @steaksauce wrote: you have to configure a mail relay.
Not necessarily. You could have a script log in to a mail server via SMTP and send the email.
That said, it is likely simplest to install a local MTA (postfix) and configure it to relay to your mail server.
