monitoring CISCO ISDN backup line

Hi all,
We have ADSL line as the main line, and we have ISDN line as the backup line.
We need to know how to monitor the ISDN backup line and send us an email when the ISDN backup line come up.
could you tell me how to setup an alert via email , we want to minimise the cost as when the main line down, the ISDN backup line comes up and it could stays on line for a long time and this cost alot of money .
pls give us the example of the config setup if possible.
thanks
