email alert not working and also execute comand filter

Post by jcm1107 » Wed May 04, 2016 2:54 am

Hi,
I am trying to get the email alerts working. I have changed just about everything I can think of. I have followed many guides, every link in google that comes up for zoneminder email that is in english. I started with https://www.linux.com/learn/how-operate ... nux-part-1 to install zoneminder. I have it installed ok, I just need to learn more about the filters and email. I have also followed this:

https://wiki.zoneminder.com/How_to_get_ ... Zoneminder
and
https://www.freesoftwareservers.com/ind ... tachments/

as a prerequisite I had to follow:
https://www.freesoftwareservers.com/ind ... -messages/

also tried https://wiki.zoneminder.com/How_to_get_ ... Zoneminder

I can email myself from the command line. I have the ssmpt set up. I also have a bash script that will email me, if I could get zoneminder to execute this I would also be ok. I have not installed sendmail, postfix or anything else at this time. I have tried them previously and could not get it to work. I thought everything was conflicting so I did a clean install of my system then followed everything again. I am using mint 17.3 rosa 64 bit. I am also using zoneminder 1.26.5 as this is what gets installed when I follow the first link. I first tried the latest version and I had no video so started over with this version and everything seems to work decent, just I can not figure out the email alerts or executing commands. I have also read and followed the wiki many times to attempt to get this working. The wiki outlines how to set up the email console settings but not much on anything else that needs to be present or configured for it to work. I don't know if it is a configuration file I need to edit or what I am doing wrong. For a very detailed description of what I have done already see my post here https://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic. ... 6&start=60, I have done a lot so look through all of the pages. I have tried to figure this out and I have hit a road block.
