Hi Henrik

Yes, I got the alert, no problem.
The e-mail address <number>@messagenet.com sends an SMS to <number>
I obviously removed my own number before sending this mail :-)
I then sorted out the problem, but never got a recovery message.

In case you need to know, I am using Hobbit version 4.1.2

That shouldn't cause it to drop the recovery message - when you have a
RECOVERED setting on an alert rule, the recovery message goes out to all
the people who were alerted originally.

At least, that's how it *should* work.

Now, the question for Vernon is: Did the "55512345 at messagenet.com.au"
recipient in your original report get the alert message ? There's a
DURATION>5 there, so if it was a short-lived problem he may not have
gotten the alert - and then there's no recovery message either.
