    Are you able to access its management interface Web based, ssh, or serial over the console??

    What access to the unit do you have? Or is this what you are asking i.e. having the unit, how to manage it?
    Presumably if you are at a web interface, you have to navigate through the option to locate the email address and change it.  If you are using ssh/console, you should look where that email is set, and see how to change it ?

    Just taking generic Proventia IPS guide on configuring e-mail notification - see pg 77 (alerts/event) 133 - 134 (appliance-related events)


    Unless you are saying the Siteprotector, where it can schedule for report
    referring to ISSForum mailing list on updates @

    Specifically for Siteprotector there is email configuration as well
    - Section 3 - Configuration - Part A (configure e-mail alerts for Critical or High severity notifications)
    - Section 3 - Configuration - Part B (Defining e-mail Response Objects)
