Any Windows Server 2008+ or Windows Vista+ computer can become your centralized log Computer.

You really should think about updating your 2003 Servers soon.

You can schedule email notification for the particular or set of events you want to monitor on Windows Server 2003 and Windows Server 2008.

It will send you email  when that particular event occurs with the details you want to have, its a in built Windows feature to monitor events logs.

let me you know if you need more help in configuring that.
