[Snort-users] Emailing alerts troubleshooting

Of course. For qmail in particular it is virtually transparent: you need
to replace your existing sendmail (usually /usr/lib/sendmail) with the
sendmail in /var/qmail/bin.

I haven't tried this and my one caveat is that snort may not use a
generic MUA interface. If they try to talk directly to sendmail there
may be compatibility issues.

Is that possible to use another mail server (e.g. qmail)
other than sendmail to perform emailing alerts ? If yes, 
which parameters in conf. files are necessary to setup ?

My configuration is:
- Mandrake linux 8.2
- Snort 1.8.4
- MySQL 11.15 distrib 3.23.47
- Apache 1.3.23
- PHP 4.1.2
- ACID 0.9.6b20
- Sendmail 8.12.1
