I have downloaded Max Vision rules and when I try to start snort using his
rules, I get the following error:

ERROR: /etc/snort-vision.conf (93) => Unknown keyword "uricontent" in rule!

The rule is as follows:

alert TCP $INTERNAL 80 -> $EXTERNAL any (msg: "IDS276/http-cgi-bugzilla-exploit"
; flags: A+; uricontent: "process_bug.cgi"; nocase; content: "blaat at ...1874...";
nocase; reference:arachnids,276;)

I have changed "uricontent" to "urlcontent" and that did not work. How do I
verify the syntax of these rules?

Another question is, how do I setup snort to send email alerts?
