I have some 'hacks' to alert_smb that send an email INSTEAD of smb alerts.
Basically just replaced the smbclient  -M %s with sendmail -oi %s
(made the buffer bigger, added in some headers to keep it friendly, set it
high priority in unix/Windos mailers, put the alert type on the subject like
to I could fit MOST stuff in the 110 char limit for pager.
for priceline, I will take bids....
