Intercepting spooler timeout  messages

Last Modified: 2015-07-30
Hi Experts,
I have an unattended printing process on w2k sp4. When the printer goes down a popup asks if retry or cancel the job.
The best would be  intercept the message, cancel the job, write a log and then reset the state.

The lowest level of the solution would be avoid the user message triggering a predefined condition such as delete job.

Do you know a way to achive this?
Thank you in advance for every suggestion
