I'm using Test level alert - "transaction failure" with "Retry on error" enabled.
Does anyone know the timeout value of first try and the 2nd try? Could these timeout values configure?
I guess the first try will be timeout in 60 seconds.... then it will "retry" after a few seconds and wait another 60 seconds as timeout.....so I should be able to get the email alert in 2 minutes time?
Much appreciate for any comments.

Timeout values are managed in the script and default to 60s. Retry on error only triggers on certain errors, typically the types of error that cause an actual error, not a timeout.
Your logic is correct if the error only occurs after timeout in which case you would have to wait till end of second test for the alert trigger to fire, but please check the retry on error documentation here to determine whether the error you are experiencing is handled or not.
