RE: Email notifications

I believe that I had the same issue as you.

The way that I fixed it was to use the following parameters {AffectedComputerIPs} which will display the IP number.

In our subject line for email alerts I enter the following:

Virus Detected: {ReceivedThreatNames} {AffectedComputerNames} {AffectedComputerIPs} :{EventDescriptions}

RE: Email notifications

First thanks to Matthaus for starting this thread, it got me looking into those mail notifications. I'd disabled (most of) them because we were geting loads of messages here and at first I just didn't have any time to look into this.

I'm presently playing/trying different mail notifications... The problem is that I sometimes get tons of messages or a message with a lot of System names & IP... it becomes difficult to filter the emergency...

Anyone has some experience to share ?
