	Thanks for the reply.  That looks to be what I want to return 
in the e-mail.  I'll have to see if I can find a easy way to do that 
in Linux (generic 'mail' can do that I believe--probaly a seperate 
script for each Threshold I'm monitoring or at least a seperate text 
file to import).  I'm looking at the Thres items in config.html for 
MRTG and I'm wondering, is there a way to make it send an e-mail when 
it reaches value X, but not send another e-mail for Y minutes 
(assuming its still above the threshold and regardless of whether or 
not the Threshold was reached during period Y)?  Has anyone done 
that?  If MRTG doesn't allow for it, a perl or shell script that 
outputs the time to file when run and reads from it when run again 
can probably do it.  Interesting idea...  Thanks again!
