For alerts you can specify any command you want, so instead of / in
addition to using an email address, you can do something like:

> *** Alerts ***
> # 'to' can be a comma separated list of email addresses or programs
> to = gregs at sloop.net,|/path/to/mail-alerts.sh

...where mail-alerts.sh is a script you write or find that does what you
want.  See the options for the 'to' variable in the Alerts section of
the docs, here:
