I don't use SnortCenter. Though snort comes with all those capabilities. 
alert_fast and alert_smb in your snort.conf under
output plugins. Now again I don't use snortcenter, you can use either 
alert_syslog or -s on the command line and configure
swatch to watch your logs. I'm sure you can hack-up a script to run from 
cron to enter /var/log/snort (or wherever you log)
and e-mail you the stuff periodically. I know this doesn't discuss 
anything related to snortcenter, but hopes it gives you some

The secret to success is to start from scratch and keep on scratching.
