I may have missed something obvious but am having much trouble in filtering email alerts from dcfm.
I'm getting loads of unwanted alerts and i can't seem to find out how to filter them out.
Event policies don't seem to be driving things - ie when no policies are enabled the alerts still appear.
Also, i've sussed out filtering the master log to obtain meaningful output on the screen, where i'm primarily interested in Ports / ISLs going offline. - question is how do i transfer this filtering into my email alerting?
I'm slightly ashamed of having to pose this quesiton as the matter of email alerting shouldn't be so challenging!
thank you John

I had missed something, rather i'd neglected to read the manual.
Email filtering is done on a per-user basis - not suprisingly perhaps! So i edited my own user profile and so staunched the flow
of unwanted emails.
Events are selected and advanced filtering used to manage specific include or excludes - in my case those names of embedded switches connected but no longer in use.
I won't be thinking about assigning myself any points!
