Well, so I thought. Experimenting a bit and reading the documentation
for SetEnvIf
( I
see that I cannot set a variable based on any information from the
response. Only request information is available.

Too bad. 

I could of course make my own distiller script that recognises
response 500 and send emails in that case, but that will drown the
server I guess if every request shall go through a new instance of
bash,sed,perl or something like that.

Back to square one. Any help is appreciated.
