Where is the file to forward an email from say syslog to your say hotmail account for instance, I ask because I am now having syslogs sent every night to my hotmail account and I do not want that anymore because it is now causing problems because of authentication rules I have placed up I cant seem to remember the file I edited though, I either need to do that or figure out how to allow logs to send even with my authentication settings.
no this isn't it I checked to be sure, but it is something like an alias file, but of course I did a search of all files that had the word alias in them and also required that the file contained my email address and nothing came up...Logs mail to you by default with FC1 anyways, origanally they mail to root@localhost, I somehow changed it to mail to my hotmail account and want to make it so it mails to localhost again because of security errors I have been recieving in logs from this. Anyways I appreciate any help and thanks for the suggestion MiscGeek.
Or take a look in your /etc/email-adresses
Since you don't mention what distro you're using or mailprogram it's not easy to guess where the e-mail list is.
But YES MiscGeek is right.
It's your email aliases that you have to change.
very sorry about lack of specification, I am running FC1, none of these contains what I am looking for, in fact if I remember correctly the file I edited in the first place had just a few lines, I can't remember for the life of me the file though, I am a newb so I guess I need to start taking some notes on things I do so that they can be reversed lol. anyways any more suggestions would be appreciated. Also I just get logs, I dont get all email, like in my inbox I frequently get stuff from cron, the email I used to get in hotmail box before I added security said this "LogWatch for mylocalhostname " anyways hope this extra information will help you guys more understand what I am talking about, thanks for the efforts so far very much appreciated.

thanks that is where it was, apparently this was not the issue though, it is something with sendmail since I have required authentication via SSL anyways if you have any ideas on that search my name it should be a recent thread, anyways thanks for the answer for this one it is much appreciated!!!
