Do you have the "notify.on.failure" etc. set in your forrestbot
descriptor? I suppose yes, or it wouldn't be trying to send the mail.

Our docs say that some mailers need "".

The forrestbot on our zone has "" as "localhost".

Our descriptors are in our SVN if that helps for examples:

Try a test to ensure that you can send mail direct from the
command-line on your server, as the user which runs forrestbot.

That is all that i can think of for now.
