Send Fail2Ban logs to multiple addresses

So I was running into an issue where I wanted to send the logs to blocklist.de as well as my own personal email, and my business email. However I found myself running into issues of sending to more than one. So I figured out the proper syntax for the jail.conf and jail.local

sendmail-whois-lines[name=FILTERNAME, dest=”[email protected],[email protected],[email protected]”, [email protected], sendername=”Fail2Ban”]

Just replace the parts in all caps with the appropriate settings for you. I always add blocklist.de to report to a whole community of abusers
