Yes, I am running monit on a separate system.  Appended is my .monitrc
file.  When I run monit, it complains that voluntocracy.gro isn't
found, but it doesn't send any email.  What am I doing wrong?


set daemon 60

set logfile /home/jaffer/monit.log

set mailserver localhost

set mail-format { from: address@hidden }

set alert address@hidden

check host voluntocracy.gro with address voluntocracy.gro
   if failed url http://voluntocracy.gro
      then alert
