Looking at your swatchrc file, it seems the line "/hotmail" is the problem
Here you are looking for the keyword "Priority" in alert file. Right?. Then
why you have given /hotmail, is it have any valid reason. Try again, with
removing that line.

Also, I have send the swatch_snort setup manual along with this mail.

Hope it is useful.
