We could, but that is a production environment I will not mess with  
for such tests.

If you're asking if you can use this environment for testing, them I'm  
afraid not. It's a production environment running private company  
projects, so it cannot be used for testing nor can I provide access to  

However I get the email from cron, so I can report if I see anything  
unusual, but I cannot automatically redirect all that email to a  
public address everyone can read.
