The email notification will be sent only if the visits (hits) of the error link overcome the given count.
Redirect all 404 Error links in one page
All 404 links will be redirected to one single page, a custom url or a menu item. This parameter will not override the error urls that have been already fixed (Redirects).
Extra security with the danger strings
All URLs that contain a danger string will be redirected to one specific page (a custom URL or a menu item. Also, you will be able to manage the list of the danger strings. You can insert more danger strings by adding one entry per row.
