Thanks, I'll try that and tell you what happens.
As I said, it used to be simple to forward logwatch to a local machine.
(I'm thinking 2 or 3 years ago, possibly pre-Fedora, on Redhat systems.)
I'm not sure what has changed.

I'm actually running a dovecot/IMAP server on the machine, alfred,
that I want the email sent to.
I read my email on my laptops from this server.
This works beautifully.
