Create an alerts server than works along with an Identity Mgmt system. The server would allow you to set the methods by which you can be reached and by whom. So, I could say %u201CIf I receive an email from this person, and I haven%u2019t opened it within 2 hours, send me an SMS message%u201D That could then be structured to reach you via SMS, IM, email or phone. You can set thresholds, on the time to react to each message type. Since everything is over IP these days, this is definitely doable.
