ALOM Email Alerts

Hi

I'm new to this forum and I was hoping you can help me with this strange activity.
I have a Sol10 sun4u sparc SunFireV250 machine. Currently running ALOM 1.6.8 firmware.
The following error was experienced on this machine:
"Input power unavailable for PSU @ PS0"

Reading the documention this particular message is considered to be a Major event. And if the ALOM email settings are correct and email should have been sent, which in this case it has'nt.

To confirm my ALOM config is correct and the alerts are working I ran the following command from the OS.
/usr/platform/`uname -i`/sbin/scadm send_event -c "Test event message please ignore"

The above seem to have worked , though the -c option will send a custom critical alert which will act on only critical alerts. So I then decided to run the command without the -c option which sends a major event.
/usr/platform/`uname -i`/sbin/scadm send_event "Test event message please ignore"

The above command did not send out an email alert.
Does this mean only critical events are only sent out via email and not Major events such as "Input power unavailable for PSU @ PS0" ? I would like ALOM to send alerts when these events occur.
