I'm looking for a simple (in other words, up and running in a few
minutes) log watching tool (or technique) for linux.. Nothing
complicated.. Ideally, I'd like to "tail" some files, and whenever a
line appears which matches some "grep" expression (or some similar
mechanism), shoot me an email with a copy of that line. 

My needs are that simple and I'd like to avoid any complex log analysis
tools, etc.

Any tips would be appreciated,
