Here's the output in that file, it essentially just says what the email body contains, but no further info that I can see:

[event_id] => 2083733

[logging_enabled] => 1

These alerts are unimportant if they will not be generated when I turn on notifications for everybody. If these are only being generated because I have a modified template assigned that covers *all* alerts, that's fine.

I just want to make sure our helpdesk contact group isn't receiving them as well when I turn everything on.

You should be good to go.

I see that:
[hostproblemid] => 0

Which means there are no issues, so you are getting the email because you asked for "everything".

I am going to lock this topic as we are not actively monitoring this forum anymore since we have migrated to
a new Support System. So please make sure you register there:

We're moving to a new support system!

The Nagios Answer Hub is a place where you can get help with technical questions from our experts. There, you can quickly open tickets and join discussion boards.

Request Nagios Answer Hub access here: https://info.nagios.com/answer-hub-access-new-users

After completing the access form, you will be given access to a portal where new tickets can be created. We will keep the old customer forum sections and ticket system available for current cases to be resolved.

You'll still be able to look at the forum in read-only mode, and if you have issues related to this forum topic
you can include a link to this topic in the new Support System.
