	msg.From = "system@localhost.local";
	msg.Recipients = "admin@localhost.local";
	msg.Subject = "Kentico Errors (" + errors.Count + ")";
	msg.Body = "<html><body><ul>";
	// Creates a list of the errors
	foreach (EventLogInfo errorEvent in errors)
		msg.Body += String.Format("<li>{0} - {1} - {2}</li>", errorEvent.EventType, errorEvent.EventCode, errorEvent.EventDescription.Substring(0, 100));
