SW can execute an alerting application when too many files are found in specified directories, i.e. sending a mail-to-sms message to your mobile phone. It was created to allow notification to the administrator when 'severe' ZIP DoS attacks occur, but it also serves well as a general spool directory monitor, even for use with other mail programs.
