I’ve configured email alerts from tigger actions for a “Node
I’ve now tested twice by powering off a test network device but
so far I’ve received no email. I have added our providers SMTP server IP
address rather than hostname but to no avail.
1. Did you try testing the alert in the Alert Manager. That way regardless of if the alert is configured correctly, it should send an email. If you get the email, you know it is probably your trigger rule. If you do not get an email it is probably your email set up or a spam filter in your email system.
2. Post a picture of your alert rule and email set up, blacking out anything that is not public viewing appropriate and lets see if we can see an issue.

I would troubleshoot from the email side then. Verify your SMTP server and your spam rules.
