This one should trigger all-right, and if I copy your alert-config
into my own config-file it does send out alerts (in fact, I'm afraid
I sent some of them to you because I forgot to change the e-mail
address in the config file).

Could you try this:

Login as hobbit 

Cut-and-paste the alert message into a file "alert.msg", with the
"@@page..." as the first line, and the "@@" as the last line.

The run these commands:

./server/bin/bbcmd --env=server/etc/hobbitserver.cfg sh
# You now have a shell with the Hobbit environment set
hobbitd_alert --debug <alert.msg

You should see messages like these:
