patch management tool

I have a suse linux 9(SLES 9)
I have configured "YOU" (yast online update) and it all working fine, synchronising on a daily base with but I would like to know if they is a tools or scripts that inform you of any patches that has not been applied and notify you via email.

Basically, I would like to know if there is any patch management tools which checks your system against patch reference just like sun solaris patchdiag and then notify you of any patches that has yet been applied or any security patches not yet beeen patched

In KDE, there is a small applet to monitor the patch server for new updates. It is called SuSEWatcher. I don't know any tool that does e-mail notification.
