[GE users] Rescheduling emails

Hi folks,

We have recently implimented a set of prolog and epilog scripts for one
of our software queues; if the software cannot run due to
memory/licensing/etc issues, the job is sent back to the queue (pe_start
exit code 99).

Unfortunately, it appears that SGE considers the prolog/epilog a full
start/stop of the job and issues mail when the "-m be" flag is used.

Is anyone aware of an option to SGE that will mail only on execution of
the job itself, not the prolog/epilog?
