Add a parameter to indicate the host from which an error message/email is coming from

We were getting multiple error emails during off hours.  In this case it was "Event Listeners are taking too long to respond or they are not alive."  But the same could be added across other events as well.  We researched for quite a few hours before we realized the messages were coming from our test server and not our production server.  It would be very helpful to be able to identify that right in the email we receive.

Here is an example of the message we receive now:

eventType: Alert.pingEventListener.pingEventListenerError.1
ExceptionLevel: Exceptional
timestamp: 1578525006427
datetime: 2020.01.08 17:10:06 CST
mailFrom: siadmins@********.com
subject: Error: Event Listener
mailTo: siadmins@********.com
Msg: Event Listeners are taking too long to respond or they are not alive.

    Yes, there is no info about which environment is sending these emails (we have three as of now and it will increase to 5 or 6 in the future). Please add servername or node name in the notification.
