Sorry if this is a bit off topic, but:

I'm using kill -30 on my OBSD-3.0 system to view the packet stats that snort
generates.  I would like take this output and mail it to an email address,
but I'm having no luck.  Here is what I have tried so far:

kill -30 xxxx | mail -s "Snort Packet Stats" email at ...5892...
kill -30 xxxx > snortstat.txt
kill -30 xxxx | tee snortstat.txt

Funny thing is, these work fine for sending other commands to a file or
such, but not "kill" for some reason.
