Can we have some sort of system in place that e-mails you if someone attacks a colony?
Maybe a standalone program that alerts you when you're logged off?

If I recall, never having a chance to actively defend is what made me give up on this game.
At one point I was going to write something to do the above, but decided my time would be better spent playing another game. It would be against the rules anyways.

Well, the ability exists already to have your in-game mails immediately forwarded to your email address when they are received.

You would like an option for an automatic mail to be sent about colony invasion?

I wasn't aware we had this.
Is it possible that it warns you if someone trespasses or attacks your colony?

This. This. This.

Though, it could be made to notify you once via mail regardless of how many times any particular plays lands. Or get a list of all landings over say 10 minutes and send that. It could be worked out to make any spam pretty manageable. In theory anyway.
