336 Chapter13·InstallingGFIEventsManager Formatting Your E-Mail Message Regardless of whether you choose to use an Exchange Server or an SMTP Server, you have the option of customizing the e-mail message that is sent when an alert is triggered. To do so, just click the Format E-mail Message button found on the Alerting Options properties sheet's Email tab, shown earlier in Figure 13.13. GFI EventsManager provides you with a rather nice default e-mail message, but if you want to make modifications to this message, it is easy to do so. Clicking the Format Email Message button opens a text editor you can use to compose your message. You can even insert EventsManager-specific tags and rich text.
