I have set monit to send email if my java listener failed on port 8000. I have tried to close the listner and run monit validate below is the errors I got.

monit validate
'cs8000' process is not running
Sendmail error: 550-Verification failed for <monit@localhost>
Aborting event
monit: Start or stop method not defined -- process cs8000

I have set the mailserver as below.

set mailserver mail.***.com port 26 username "test1@***.com" password "****" . I am just using the *** to hide the actual name.

What else must I set in order for the email to be send out?
