Problem Getting E-Mails from Logcheck Application

Hi there --

I've installed logcheck onto one of our systems, and I have configured it to check the various log files of a remote system. However, I have not received any e-mails that I would expect to be receiving.

The application is configured to run in 'Paranoid' or verbose mode, and I have configured the server's syslog-ng as well as the remote host's syslog.conf files to be able to 'communicate' with each other.

Has anyone had similar a problem, and know what the solution is to it? Thanks.
