We have to provide a feature to send a test email when configuring the alerting (or SMTP server).
Because without this feature, there is no way to verify that a e-mail is send in the event of an alert. This makes it really hard to configure because a user has to setup the whole system, force an alert and wait for its detection in order to verify the configuration.
A solution can be to add a property to the email configuration like "Send test mail on configuration changed" and based on this, an email will be send to the default recipients.
