This is a great way to keep your website up-to-date, being notified of every "page not found" error occurrence. Of course, there are many other pages that you can create for a variety of error messages, some of the most common include:

401 - Authorization Required
400 - Bad request
403 - Forbidden
500 - Internal Server Error
404 - Wrong page

You could also include other variables in the email, such as the time of the error or who was visiting the site (IP Address). For a full list of environment variables, visit NCSA.
