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 = email@example.com
logwatch: Output = mail
logwatch: Detail = high
The result is an email sent
firstname.lastname@example.org with every important details.
