Now that your Pi is making prediction on package deliveries, let's set up some alerts!
Go to IFTTT and log in (or create an account).
Once you are logged in, click Create in the top right corner to create a new Applet.
Click the Add button on the If This block.
Search for and select Webhooks.
Set the Event Name trigger to package, and click on Create trigger.
This will trigger an action when the ML model label is "package".
Next, click the Add button on the Then That block.
Search for and select Email.

Copy the key from the top of the page.
