Email errors to yourself or better alternative?

I am about to go into production with my rails app and would like some
sort of error monitoring. In my previous apps (ASP.NET), I have just
caught all errors globally, emailed them to myself, and redirected the
user to a general error page. Is there a simple way of doing this in
rails, or is there a better alternative?

Thanks,
Gabe

I've used the first one and it works great right up till you have an error on your homepage and your site gets hammered with traffic and you get 15,000 emails :slight_smile:
