OSSEC and local notification

  1. I have installed OSSEC on one of my Linux computers. It works, but I would like to get local notifications in my user's mail folder, instead of email notifications. I'm Googling on this but having trouble finding anything... Can it be done? How?

    Oh, bonus points to anyone who can tell me how to make Xfce notify me graphically upon receiving local mail.

    You should be able to use a local account's email address. I do this on my laptop.

    The local smtpd knows how to deal with this.
  3. Ah, thank you!

    Edit: thanks, that works. Note that one has to install an MTA; I used sendmail because it was simpler to configure than postfix.
