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).
