As I see it you have two choices... hack postgresql directly to add in
emailing functionality to the elog mechanisms in postgresql or write
some type of script/daemon to parse the postgresql logs to look for
error messages. A fairly simple script set up to run continuously or via
cron could handle the second option, if you want something fancier you
could look at http://nagios.sourceforge.net. HTH.
