[rancid] Rancid Emails on Downed Hosts

Assuming that I understand the question correctly, RANCID will e-mail
that info to 'rancid-<groupname>' on the local machine.  You then define
the 'rancid-<groupname>' alias in /etc/aliases and define who should
receive the e-mails.
You've added devices to a group called CompanyA.  RANCID will send the
e-mail to thel address of 'rancid-CompanyA' on the local machine.
Within /etc/aliases, you might have a line such as:
rancid-CompanyA        ron at example.com
Note:  This is a very simple example as I applied it to an older version
of RANCID.  Caveat emptor.

	Where is that you set Rancid to email a list of routers etc that
it cant get the config for? I know it can be done and just cant find for
the life of me where this is, had a look in the rancid.conf file and
cant see anything obvious in there
