First of all, thanks for your response.
I tried the above command, but the mail did not get through.

Looking at /var/log/maillog on helen I see the lines
-------------------------------

Data format error
-------------------------------

I suspect this means the email was sent to my ISP, eircom.net ,
who rejected the email on the grounds the address was unknown or wrong.

This file was empty (except for a comment line) on my Fedora-9 system.
But I've added
-------------------------------
MailTo = [email protected]
MailFrom = Logwatch
-------------------------------
and will see if this does the trick.
