[mrtg] threshold alert every 2 hour, not every 5 minutes

Every 5 minutes, I'm having my MRTG server poll my router for the
bandwidth status.  Every time it polls, it checks the input against the
defined threshold boundary which I set.  If the threshold is broken, it
calls a perl script which then sends out an email.  

If the T1 maxes out for 30 minutes, I'd receive 6 email messages
notifying me of the threshold break.   This is unreasonable.  I want to
receive 1 email message only if the T1 maxes out for 2 hours straight.
Does anyone have any ideas on how I would go about doing this?  Thanks
in advance.
