Default How to change rkhunter daily monitoring email address


I am currently receiving daily emails (from: root, to: root) about rkhunter.

How can I change the delivery address for these emails?

For reference, the emails say:

From root@myserver.com  Fri May  4 06:28:43 2012
Return-Path: <root@myserver.com>
X-Original-To: root@myserver.com
Delivered-To: root@myserver.com
X-Virus-Scanned: Debian amavisd-new at myserver.com
Subject: [rkhunter] myserver.com - Daily report
To: root@myserver.com
Date: Fri,  4 May 2012 06:28:27 +0100 (BST)
From: root@myserver.com (root)
Status: RO

You can set it in rkhunter.conf under "MAIL-ON-WARNING = your@email.address"

It should be in /etc
Never execute code written on a Friday or a Monday.
