you can use for example the "exec" action to post the mail to the queue directly, something like this:

  check host myhost ...
    if failed port 8000 then exec "/bin/mail -s alert address@hidden"

You can use your custom script to perform whatever action you want - monit sets the environment variables which describe what happened and can be used for custom action. See monit manual for details.

Looking at the source, it doesn't look like this is possible, but I wanted to make sure, or see if anyone else had this issue.

I want monit to send email, but I can't run a local SMTP server or have it send to a remote one (long story). What I want is for monit to deliver straight to /var/spool/mail/<user>. This isn't a really hard modification to the source (basically rewriting "int sendmail(Mail_T)" in sendmail.c) but I was wondering if there was some more elegant way.
