There are two ways to fix this, 2 is probably preferred:

1) By default, in the Denyhosts Debian package, the configfile is installed at /etc/denyhosts.conf. If you didn't take the Debian package, it will be at /usr/share/denyhosts/denyhosts.cfg. Either way, edit this file, and look for the line starting with ADMIN_EMAIL. Set this to your own e-mail address.

2) Configure your mailserver to forward root@localhost to you. For some hints, check /etc/aliases (at least on Postfix, don't know about Exim).
