This is a simple Script that checks the W2K event log of choice and emails the results to the DBA. This script also uses the find command so you can search for strings in your event logs. It creats two scripts, the first script sp_EventlogSys runs xp_sendmail which executes the second procedure sp_EventlogSysquery and attaches the results to a text file to be mailed to the DBA. This script has been setup to find all ERROR messages in the System event log. Just schedule the sp_eventlogsys to run every n hrs, n week and you'll have only the error messages sent by email.
