Fail2Ban works now. The reload has to be done with

/usr/bin/fail2ban-client reload

and not with
/etc/init.d/fail2ban reload
(as mentioned in the howto from

However, the log indicates that there is still an issue with the mail message (address changed here):
2010-05-22 11:57:10,435 fail2ban.actions.action: ERROR printf %b "Hi,\n
The jail ASTERISK has been started successfully.\n
Fail2Ban"|mail -s "[Fail2Ban] ASTERISK: started" returned 7f00
Any ideas why the mail-message doesn't work? The mail address is on a different server. Could this be the reason?
