I thought the default setup that you get when you install on raid would 
configure it to send email to root about problems (that is, you get an 
entry for 'MAILADDR root' in /etc/mdadm.conf and an automatically 
started madadm --monitor process).  At least I don't remember doing 
anything special to get those and there is a line:
# mdadm.conf written out by anaconda
at the top of the file.

So the only thing you should have to do is add an alias for root in 
/etc/aliases to have this and the info that logwatch sends periodically 
delivered to the address of your choice.  Depending on your internet 
connection and mail server, you might need some tweaking to make 
outbound mail work, but that's a different question.
