When any event happens or there is a need to send a notification alert, Alibaba Cloud Monitor (Cloud Monitor) can trigger an email to sendQuick onCloud (sendQuick). sendQuick will then convert the email message to alerts and send to mobile phone based on the policy (filter) rules assigned. The email messages are sent from Cloud Monitor to sendQuick for processing.
