Is there a way you can tell Nagios to stop alerts when the local internet goes down?

Hi Experts,

I've been using Nagios for almost 6 months now and its been great, we have 1 small issue.

When the internet goes down (on the local Nagios box) Nagios thinks all Hosts/Services are disconnected. Therefore the alerts are sitting in the SMTP queue. When the internet comes back up, we get flooded (even our clients) with email alerts.

So that leaves me with my final question...

Is there a way you can tell Nagios to stop sending alerts sitting in the queue when the local internet goes down?
