Hello, we have a system monitoring product setup to monitor our infrastructure for issues. However there are times where certain events will cause issues with multiple nodes in our infrastructure all at once. When this happens the email notifications "mailbomb" the notification mailbox. As such we are looking for someone to make for us a daemon we can have the notification email piped to. This daemon should then take the piped email and store it in a queue and there should be a specifiable interval where the queue is checked. For the length of the interval if by the time the interval ends there is no new queue entries a email should be sent with the emails in the daemon's queue. If during the length of the interval one or more new emails are caught the daemon should wait until the next interval passes with no new queue entries before sending out a email. Hopefully this is clear enough but let me know if more clarification is needed. :)

Sounds pretty straight forward. I can setup a service that will check for new emails and only alert based on interval of your choosing. I have had similar issues with Nagios. Will only take one day to put it together.
