How can I set up monitoring for few devices where the only status comes from emails it sends?

I'm considering setting up an OpsView (core) server for testing and have been doing research.  I have  a few periphery devices and the metric I want to monitor has no snmp node to read.  The only way I can get status is by processing/scraping a status email the device sends out.

Is there some way to mesh this with OpsView.  A simple Red/Green based on the email saying Success/Fail would be sufficient.

Sorry if it's a basic question I tried searching but search with the term email returns tons of hits about OpsView SENDING out emails but I see nothing about it processing/acting on a rcvd email.

Any help?

Thanks all
Joel.
