Apinger - Email when alarm is cancelled

Hi, I am new to this forum, and have been using pfsense since two month ago. Let me say "this product ROCKS!", it is excelent!
Anyways let's go to the point of this query
Is there a way to configure apinger to send us an email when the gateway is back online? We are getting the email alerts when the gateway goes down, and what usually happens is the link goes down at night on Sundays or any day at 2 or 3 am for 60 seconds or so. As a result, we get out of bed, remember the mother of the internet provider's salesman, and connect to see what's going on. Almost every time the link was only down for a few minutes if no seconds, and we got out of bed for no reason. If we could be alerted when the link recovers, we would be able to get back to bed without reaching the point when we already turned on the notebook and have to start typing the password…
There isn't a way to do that currently because what tends to happen is less that apinger sees it recover and more than apinger is restarted and it is assumed that the gateway is up. If you received an e-mail whenever it assumed a gateway was up, you would not be happy. :-)
That is likely to improve in the future especially now that we restart apinger less frequently.
