The usual thing to do in that case is to run two instances of something 
like Nagios:

- One that runs outside and checks connectivity to the outside edge

- One that runs inside and checks connectivity to the Internet

Big issue:

- The list of recipients needs to be carefully constructed

Is there an "internal" email server?  If so, that's where you should be 
checking for errors on the "inside instance" ... things like Gmail or 
whatnot can be used for the "outside" instance.

I got a notification last night around 20:34 that from-the-outside-in 
was down; it recovered right around 23:00.
