What do I need to do to resolve this issue with the email alerts that I receive from a Server 2003 for SBS SP2 server?

I have set up email reporting so that I will receive daily e-mail alerts on the performance of a Windows Server 2003 for Small Business Server SP 2 server.

Currently, the alerts arrive in email, and this is what they contain. How can I fix the issue so that I receive an actual alert instead of receiving the "Bad Request (Invalid Hostname)" alerts?

Hello,

Try to reconfigure SBS monitoring service module.

On the SBS run an  ipconfig /all from a command line and make sure DNS points ONLY to the SBS LAN IP. If it points to anything else such as a router or ISP please remove and re-run the connect to the Internet wizard. If is shows another LAN IP as well, it could be the RRAS server's IP. In that case open the DNS management console | right click on the server name and choose properties | under the interfaces tab make sure only the LAN IP of the server is present.
