Context and installationThe server I'm running is a Debian Wheezy.
apt-get install logwatchI wanted it to send an email to a specific local user and I wanted the email to contains as much detail as possible. I wrote to
# cat >/etc/logwatch/conf/override.conf <<EOF
logwatch: MailTo = firstname.lastname@example.org
logwatch: Output = mail
logwatch: Detail = high
The result is an email sent
email@example.com with every important details.
