Some command line arguments for the check_mail active check had been assembled in a way that allowed invalid values for {{forward_app}} or {{match_subject}}. Activating "Forward mails as events to Event Console" in WATO without specifying forward app or a regex for subject would provide the sting "None" to forward-app and leave {{match_subject}} empty resulting in an Unhandled exception:

TypeError('first argument must be string or compiled pattern')

This change fixes command line argument generation and checks for {{match_subject}} being set.
