    Limit e-mail alerts

      Hi,
      I am not sure if this has been answered before, if it has I can not find it (been searching for awhile).
      I wrote my first custom mbean and set up a monitor to monitor one of the attributes that sends out an e-mail alert when the threshold is exceeded. Everything seems to work great except I get flooded with e-mails when the alert happens.
      I would like to be able to set the alert/monitor to send out one e-mail and then wait for the alert to be reset before sending out any more. I see under the operations section of the monitor there is an alerted() and clearAlert() methods, is there a way to access these so the alert will only send out one e-mail notification rather then one each time it checks the attribute?
      Thanks you in advance for any help you can provide.

      Jon
