For some reason, my FreeNAS box stopped emailing me when the UPS went on battery power. We lost power at my home today (PC off, clocks reset) but I didn't get an email.

First, is there a way to force it to send a test email?

Second, where is the email address supposed to be configured for NUT? I just SSH'd to my box, became root, and grepped /etc/ for my email address... nothing. It's very strange. The setting looks fine in the web GUI, but I can't find where that setting is saved.

The email setting is not specific to NUT. It is saved in the configuration database. The GUI is where you need to make your changes. The most likely reason it would stop working is if you changed the password on your email account and didn't update that on the server, in the GUI.
