alerts.http.proxy

This command assigns the URL of the proxy for any HTTP POST alerts. The proxy server protocol, port, domain, username, and password are all encoded into the URL via the format outlined in RFC2396.
The username and password must avoid the invalid characters listed in RFC2396 (e.g. ':', '@', '/', etc). If an invalid character must be used it needs to be escaped using '%' as described in http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc2396.txt.
When the setting is changed, the next HTTP POST alert will use the new value.
