Issue Alerts to sysContact not working

There were some old topics about this issue but since none of the solutions worked for me and they hadn’t been replied to in a long time I decided to create a new one.

I need to have email alerts go to the configured sysContact for each device. In the past I have only been able to get email alerting to work by creating an email transport and setting that transport in every alert rule, however now I need alerts to go to different recipients for different devices (and really want to avoid creating a new set of rules for the different recipient group).

I have the “issue alerts to sysContact” toggled on in global settings. I do NOT have a default transport set, and I even deleted the only transport I have and tested to see if that worked, but still no emails were sent to the sysContact. Is there something I need to do to the alert rules to make this work, or maybe I’m missing something in global settings?
