If there is a unix system that you are commonly logged into,
send the syslog data from the v880 over there. syslogd is
very happy to send messages to a remote syslogd, it's trivial
syslogd also has *some* concept of emailing messages, but I'm
not sure it'll do what you're looking for.
"man syslog.conf" obviously.
