[lvs-users] Ldirectord Email Notifications

There is a link for Sendmail in /usr/sbin that goes to Exim4. When I type in 
"sendmail" it brings up the Exim details, so I know that's working. Despite 
having set the emailalert property in the configuration file, there is 
nothing in the logs that mentions Ldirectord was able/unable to send the 
email. So I don't know why Ldirectord isn't even trying.

any ideas?
