Unfortunately, the logs are sent once a hour. The frequency of this is
so the operators can review the log for certain information so they can
act on it. We may be able change this to 2 hours but I need to check
with the head of operations. The operators also get a printout of the
log, too, so maybe the frequency can be changed for e-mail only.

I don't have time myself to work something up so I am dependent on
others for this. If you can do this, this will help us out greatly and
I suppose others who could use this functionality.
