Setting up an outlook rule to forward mails, but only every x mail or every x minutes?

Setup: Exchange 2003 SP2/OL 2k3 if it matters.

I have my UPS environmental monitors setup to email me in the event that thresholds have been breached, on top of the normal power issues.  We've been experiencing some HVAC issues, so I'd like to have it forward these mails onto my cell phone.

However, when the environmental thresholds get breached, the UPS tends to send out a TON of emails as the temp flucuates around that threshold point (Came in to 25 mails of breach/clear this morning).  So, what I'm ideally looking for is a rule/script setup of some sort that will forward these mails onto my phone (just using a normal email address there), but only do it once every y minutes (that is, somehow figure out that it's already forwarded a mail using this rule once in the past 5 minutes, don't do it again).

This cannot be done with a rule alone.  It can be done with a script or a combination of a rule and a script.  The script would be client-side though, meaning that your computer would have to be on with Outlook open and running for this to work.  A secondary issue is that sending messages via a script is going to trigger Outlook's built-in security, which will result in a dialog-box popping up warning that an application is trying to send and asking you for permission to allow it to continue.  That pretty much kills an unattended process.  There are ways around this, but they tend to require third-party tools/utilities, not all of which are free.
