      Description

      If no email alert destination is configured for fail2ban, then email alerts are sent to "none@yourpbx.com". Since (as of now) this email address is not valid, these alerts are piling up in the mail queue. Expected behavior would be that if no email address is specified, then fail2ban would not try to send alerts.

      This means that (A) unless you buy System Admin Pro you can't fix this issue without manually modifying system managed config files, and (B) you are forced to send fail2ban alerts somewhere which, if you have  responsive firewall enabled, can generate quite a lot of alerts.
