Exception notification & data security

I was about to use the exception_notification plugin, and then I
realized that the information it sends out could include user data (as
a part of the exception message) which in my application is something
we need to be careful about. I think that for my needs, an ideal
notification system would send out a very basic message with minimal
content, and then store all the detailed error report information in
the database for reference. That way the potentially sensitive
information would not travel through the email system and onto
potentially unsecured computers.

I think it would not be hard to implement that, but... is there
already a plugin that can handle that?

Thanks,

p.s. I do realize that exception_notification lets you configure the
email message, but I do want the information it includes by default--
just not in the email message itself.

You could rip that plugin apart and have it log it instead of email it. Or you could have it send the email to an address that resides on the server itself, then use something else (procmail?) to send a short and sweet message to notify you to go look at it....

There's also hoptoad_notifier. There's an online component to it. I have no idea if you can have it deliver the messages (it's over http) to an internal server or not... I haven't seen any others that are "local/internal"...
