    can't get these two lines to work:

    Do I need quotes around the log path? Do I need them around the email address?

    I triggered mod_evasive with a test script and it blocks me but no mails get ever sent out nor any logs are being generated.

    Is it ok if the evasive log directory is owned by www-data:www-data or should it be root:adm as the other apache log files?

    found this: http://library.linode.com/web-servers/apache/mod-evasive#sph_dosemailnotify

    is that needed if I installed libapache2-mod-evasive via apt-get? shouldn't is my guess...
