Monitoring E-Mail Alerts Scalably

http://serverfault.com – Anyone know of a way to monitor e-mail alerts scalably? For many of my on site services I have them e-mail me on success (and failure) of critical tasks. The reason I have it e-mail on success, is sometimes the failure is of a nature that the service can't e-mail a failure alert. Unfortunately this doesn't scale, I now get so many alerts I don't really monitor them, but I can't afford to alert on failure because that's been too unreliable in the past. What I would like ideally is a cloud service (or mailbox), something similar to Pingdom, that I can send/forward these alerts too, that will (HowTos)
