You can use RME's Automated Action capability to do this. You pick the message types on which you wanted to be alerted, then you choose an email alert. This is configured under RME > Tools > Syslog > Automated Actions.

It depends on what you consider critical. If you go by simply severity, severities 0, 1, and 2 are generally considered critical. To setup an AA for those, you would need to add three syslog message types:

Facility : *

Sub-facility : *

Severity : 0

Mnemonic : *

Description : *

Facility : *

Sub-facility : *

Severity : 1

Mnemonic : *

Description : *

Facility : *

Sub-facility : *

Severity : 2

Mnemonic : *

Description : *
