The Notification Rules page allows the user to configure rules that are used to send email notifications.
Notification Rules section
This section provides a snapshot view of much of the important information about each currently defined notification rule. By selecting the rule number, the user can edit that rule.
Mail Settings section

The message and subject sections can contain the following dynamic substitution keys – when the email is issued these fields will be replaced with the corresponding value.

This section defines the scope of the current rule. In other words, which devices should this rule apply to? The default is for the rule to apply to all devices, but you can use the radio buttons to have a given rule apply to devices whose name, location, model or manufacturer match the filter string. Unless the exact match box is checked, this filter string will be wild-carded for matching (for example, a name filter Dell would result in any device whose name began with Dell).
Notification Reason section
This section defines what event will trigger the rule to run. There are two types of events: timed and dynamic. The user can define when any notification is cleaned from the notification history. By default, the notifications will never be deleted.

When a timed event is selected, specific text will pre-populate the message and subject sections of the Mail Settings area. See the Advanced Users section to learn how to define your own events.
Dynamic events occur when something happens to the devices. A given rule can combine any of the following reasons:
