    Email deamon, like a syslog deamon???

      Hi all,


       


       


      I am trying to develop a way to take email alerts from several sources, interpret the contents and then send the email back out again as a new email alert.


       


       


      Basically, I am looking for a product that will work like a the syslog daemon/forwarder.  I want to take alerts from like Oracle, SQL server and various other bespoke applications.  Normally, the text in these emails is rubbish, and the recipient is non-technical, so they have to be given a crib sheet to look for the required action.


       


       


      Within Orion, for all proactive alerts, I put tons of information in, about what to do with the alert, what the node means to the over all environment, severities etc..


       


       


      Of course, I would love this to be added to Orion as an add-on to the core product…  managed and used like the syslog or trap receiver.  But I know this is unlikely to happen in the near fufuturer, or ever…  so has anyone else done this, and is there a product either free, or purchased that would do this?


       


       


      Basically, receive emails… read the contents, and do some action depending on the content… 


       


       


      Cheers
