If using Linux, smart runs as a daemon and watches all drives.   What I've 
done is create a cron job that searches /var/log/messages for the word 
smart and emails me the result.  If I get a blank message, no drive 
problems,

The following url has a sample of what /var/log/messages might show if 
smart has something to report:
