Oracle Help with conditional clauses for script output


I am new this site as well as new to shell scripting and this is my first form... Please help me with the following shell script.

I am executing a shell script to run every 15 min (scheduled in cronjob) and it gives an output in an output file which is e-mailed.

CONCCOUNT=`cat $OUT_DIR/EBS_Locked_Accounts.out|grep INVALID |wc -l`

if [ $CONCCOUNT != 0 ]
echo "From:"
echo "To: $MAILLIST"
echo "MIME-Version: 1.0"
echo "Subject: Locked Accounts in EBS"
echo "Content-Type: text/html"
cat $outputFile
) | sendmail -t

My requirement is:

I don't want the script to send output every 15 min (cannot change the cronjob schedule) instead it should send the actual output every one hour unless there is a change in the count.

Thank you,

If you want to send an email once an hour and if the cron is schedules to run every 15 mins...bound the sendmail code snippet with if clause to send an email only if current mins is less than 15
if [[ $(date +%M) -lt 15 ]]; then
