Check your jail.conf for

# MTA for the mailing. Change mta configuration parameter to mail
# if you want to revert to conventional 'mail'.
#mta = sendmail
mta = mail
and maybe try mta = mail

In the jail.conf of fail2ban version 0.8.3 this option doesn't seem to exist. I tried to add the proposed commands under [Default] but neither of them: mta = sendmail or mta = mail resolved the the error.

Lightbulb Include attacked user or log segment in mail alert

Hello I'm trying to find a way to include the log section that it used to ban an IP address or better just include the attacked user in my server. What I'm trying to achieve is know which user(s) in my server are being target of attacks and check if it have a strong password.

Enyone know how to do that?
