Yeah, that's why I asked for "knobs".  I don't want these daily emails.
I am fine if in that case I'll get the weekly summary or something long
these lines.  I always assume that on error cron or the scripts will
spam me anyway.

But I don't need the electrons wasted to handle the email, the TLS, and
delivery, the storage and the time to skip them every day if they have
nothing to say;-)
