    2. How to modify the Email’s Subject from “SAN Event Alert” to “SAN Event Alert from Non-Prod Fabric” ?
    3. How to display the Event from “Port 157 (7/29) to a hostname (e.g. cmnnnbu01_fc0) ?
    4. How to display the Source from “sanpsd01-21” to sanpsd01 Non-Production Fabric ?

    To change the "From" address, go to Monitor -> Event Notification -> E-mail.


    From there you can change the "Reply Address."


    You can customise some of the other message formats, but something to think about is "Where is BNA going to get that information from?" 


    So for item 2 below, where will BNA learn that it is on the "Non-Prod Fabric" ? There's ways of doing this, based upon how you group devices, what custom fields are in use, etc, but it's something to think about.
