First of all, thanks for your response.
I tried the above command, but the mail did not get through.

Looking at /var/log/maillog on helen I see the lines
Jun  4 02:27:56 helen sendmail[10504]: m541RtCq010504:

Data format error

I suspect this means the email was sent to my ISP, eircom.net ,
who rejected the email on the grounds the address was unknown or wrong.

This file was empty (except for a comment line) on my Fedora-9 system.
But I've added
MailTo = tim alfred gayleard com
MailFrom = Logwatch
and will see if this does the trick.
