# priority for that classification.
# This allows alerts to be cassified and prioritized.  You can specify
# what priority each classification has.  Any rule can override the default
# priority for that rule.
# Here are a few example rules:
#   alert TCP any any -> any 80 (msg: "EXPLOIT ntpdx overflow";
#       dsize: > 128; classtype:attempted-admin; priority:10;
#   alert TCP any any -> any 25 (msg:"SMTP expn root"; flags:A+; \
#             content:"expn root"; nocase; classtype:attempted-recon;)
# The first rule will set its type to "attempted-admin" and override
# the default priority for that type to 10.
# The second rule set its type to "attempted-recon" and set its
# priority to the default for that type.
# config classification:shortname,short description,priority

archives for a thread on it.  It was within the last few days...  You would
also have to define a custom rule that would use the email and normal alerts
(see snort.conf for the 'redalert' example).
