Once you can email yourself from the CLI (See PostFix) you are ready for ZoneMinder Configuration.

Inside ZoneMinder, head to Options >> EMail
OPT_EMAIL>> Check
EMAIL_ADDRESS >> user@domain.com
EMAIL_BODY        >> As long as you add "%EV%" somewhere it will attach an MP4!
EMAIL_HOST >> localhost
FROM_EMAIL >> Where E-Mails appear to originate
URL >> ZoneMinder URL
%EV% = Attach the event as a video.

Now to test!

To do this, you need to create a filter. Lets first set the Camera in Modect Mode & "Force Alarm" to detect Motion then head to filters.

Create Filter to send e-mail.

Execute to test. Watch Logs.

Once it is working to your liking, you can fine tune.
