[SMTP-Alert Settings] using hosts file static IP instead of DNS lookup

In Alert scenario
How to force KIaban to use hosts file instead of DNS Lookup to define SMTP server.

Hi @Ahmed_Abdulaleem ,

Sorry, just to clarify. If you use the system OS hosts file, your custom DNS entries are not picked up?

yes, I think kibana ignoring the host's file and look directly to DNS Lookup.
