Postfix Email Alerts on Monitor Status Up/Down *Timing*

I've implemented the postfix emailing using custom SNMP traps (alert.conf OID)



I am looking for certain strings from the syslogs and when I do, I send an email.



My question is... Is there a way to specify when these alerts are triggered? I would like to exclude maintenance windows so we don't get emails every night and on Sundays.

  • i do not think there is timing feature in alertd. anyway, is scheduing start/stop postfix acceptable?
  • i send the alerts to a distribution list and simply remove recipients from the list for maintenance. We only have maintenance one weekend a month though. Might be a pain to do that nightly.
