Not getting down email notifications with Dude 3.0

I don't seem to be getting notifications when things go down, only when they come up. This has been a problem for previous versions I've used (3.0 beta 8). Anyone have any ideas?

I have the same issue with not getting down only up.
If I add unstable>down I get email within a minute, I don't want unstable>down
I want down after 5 minutes.
which is how I have it set up for.

Seeing how no one knows out to explain this I will try:

If you want to receive notice that something is down you need to look first at how the Dude looks at the status of a device.

Here is the order of things
1st 2nd 3rd
Up -> unstable -> down

So if you want notification when it's unstable put a check next to: up -> unstable
if you want notification when it's down you would put a check next to: unstable -> down
and for when it's back up from down you would put your check next to: down -> up
or for when it back up from unstable put your check next to: unstable -> up

I only look for Status of Down and then back up.
So I only have checks next to
unstable -> down
down -> up
