When are E-Mails sent?

Hello,

thanks for this nice project / GUI :-)

I have configured email alerts with the "a device is failing" tiger.
How exactly is "a device is failing" defined?

It it when the "overall evaluation" changes from passed to something else?
When does this happen? If one of the SMART values passes it's threshold?

Sorry for thy questions, I currently have no dying disks, but I want to be prepared :)

Hi!

As you've exactly wrote, the "device failing parameter" is triggered when smartctl detect that a SMART value exceed his threshold.
Maybe it's the case that I specify this thing onto the documentation! ;)

Greetings,
Sam
