Default Re: HDD goes read-only. Funky error output

I was looking into the /var/log/messages and the last line is always:

smartd[3623]: smartd has fork()ed into background mode. New PID=3623.

Any ideas? My guess is smartd is ****ing everything up.. though it doesn't make much sense seeing as it's supposed to monitor the disk...

I tried setting smartd to tell me whenever something goes wrong (via mail), but I don't think I did it right. Can anyone tell me how to do that?

Many thanks
