Use swatch to generate e-mail alerts in Snort

I currently have Snort installed on Slackware 9.1 using MySQL and Acid. I don't know of a way to have Acid automatically send alerts via e-mail. What is the best way to get this done?
ACID has limited e-mail functionality. The best and most flexible solution will be to use the "swatch" tool to generate e-mail upon certain alerts from Snort. Many sample configuration files for "swatch" are available on the Web (e.g. http://project.honeynet.org/papers/honeynet/swatchrc.txt).
