Man you did it :) after adding "mailer = "/usr/sbin/sendmail -t" now its
sending mail  to email address defined in /etc/logwatch/conf/logwatch.conf.

here is our logwatch.conf after the changes

# Local configuration options go here (defaults are in
MailTo = root,logwatch-analyser at email-monitor.abc.com
Print = No
mailer = "/usr/sbin/sendmail -t"

Here is the mail "To" header

To: root at a.abc.com, logwatch-analyser at email-monitor.abc.com

I am wondering what the dev. ppl will say about this ?

Thanks and regards
