Hello and Welcome to LinuxQuestions,

Nagios does not come with a MTA (Mail Transfer Agent) included so it sends its mails standard to localhost. Just install a MTA, for example Postfix, and configure it to relay all your mail to your Exchange server. Plenty of manuals on the internet on how to set up a relay mail server.

Looking forward to your participation in the forums. Have fun with Linux.

Kind regards,
