Email alert configuration is not supported in IPS/IDS.

I think you can configure in promiscuous mode as Customers requiring promiscuous mode (non-inline) deployments are encouraged to migrate to the Cisco IPS 4240 Sensor, which supports up to 250 Mbps of IPS throughput.

The below URL helps to configure IPS 4240 in promiscuous mode:
