[ale] changing recipient of daily system status emails....

Hi all.

Sorry, but here is another newbie question.  I am running Fedora Core 1 
and by default it sends daily system status emails the local mail spool 
of 'root'.  I was wondering a couple of things...

1. What process is actually sending the email? is it a cron job, system 
service, or what? (00-logwatch???)


2. How does one change the recipient of the email so that it goes to my 
internet email address (as this is a remote server and I would like to 
receive the emails at home).  I found the $Config{'mailto'}="root"; in 
00-logwatch cron job, but when I changed it to to my email address 
(escaping the \@) the script ran, but I didn't receive any email....

Thanks for your help.
