Hi,

I have a log file with output in the following format. I put xxxxxxxx because the log contains sensitive data.
There are multiple sections like this one and all are separated by a blank line.

I wish to receive an e-mail/set an alert when if any of the dates in the log are more than 24 hours ago. Just trying to figure out how to read and compare the dates with the current date.

xxxxxxxx                                            : xxxxxxxx
xxxxxxxx                                            : xxxxxxxx
xxxxxxxx                                            : xxxxxxxx
xxxxxxxx                                            : 1/14/2020 5:30:08 AM
xxxxxxxx                                            : 1/14/2020 5:30:06 AM
xxxxxxxx                                            : 1/14/2020 5:30:04 AM
xxxxxxxx                                            : 1/14/2020 5:30:08 AM
