Correct, You cannot define condition lengths for state alarms.

A state alarm is a datastore, host CPU usage etc

You two states are Yellow and Red, as defined by percentage of datastore.

You need to enter your SMTP server, and usernames and passwords for account, if you use Authentication for that account.

So which ever of those servers, is your desiganted SMTP server for email delivery.
