OK, I now have e-mail being sent when there is a security breach. First I did Email Setup under the Basic Info wizard and used my Gmail.com account (tried my google apps account which is really gmail, but that didn't work). It sent me a test message.
Then I used the example in the tutorial, but chose the Event "Security Breach" and device = "Security Plug In". I now get 2 e-mails for each of these e-mail events despite there being only one item in the list, still, better than none. I'd like to be able to configure the e-mails more to include more info (like when the alarm is disarmed who the user was). Does anyone know where I can edit this sort of thing from bash?
