I am thinking of using PP to keep our ISP informed of their service disruptions. <br><br>Would it be possible to include the URL that is being monitored in the email subject line?<br><br>Even further, would it be possible to append a signature file? This could contain a request for them to contact me to discuss it further.<br><br>S<br><p>

Good suggestions.<br><br>How would it work if the alert setup specified that Subject line AND a signature line? Maybe it could then do some kind of substitution for the Destination (Subject could be "Timeout failure at %s" and %s would substitute in the DNS name of the IP that you were monitoring for failure).<br><br>Keep in mind that the final destination you're tracing to might not always be the IP you're monitoring for alerts - so you may not want it to actually report the trace destination...<br><br>I'll make sure this makes it onto the "to do" list.<p>
