mdadm and booting

SuSe10.1 distro mdadm installed to run on boot.

BUT the system doesn't work as if I use the daemon launch in command line

mdadm --monitor --delay=1800 /dev/md0 &
So how do I change the way in which mdadm is launched on boot to behave like the line above?

Assuming your goal is to set the email address, you should be able to add MAILADDR to mdadm.conf for standard reporting.

DEVICE partitions
ARRAY /dev/md0 level=raid1 num-devices=2 UUID=1c661ae4:818165c3:3f7a4661:af475fda
etc., etc., etc.
Usage is described in the mdadm.conf man page.

yes I have that line. and the mdadmd is running. but when I created a faulty drive condition, i did not get any notifications to I then started the mdadmd using the line above and THEN I got notification at

I just checked my system email and I did get notifications to that account even though I had the MAILADDR line in /etc/mdadm.conf

so my system is not using this file?
