Display Need Script to ZIP/SAVE & then DELETE Log file & send a mail conformation for any error

ENVIROMENT
Linux: RHEL 6.4
Log Path: /usr/iplanet/servers/https-company/logs
Log Format: user.log.03-15-2015
I have log4j log rotation enabled rotating files on a daily basis.

The rotated logs are NOT compressed & are taking up too much space.

I need a script that will run daily that will do 3 things:

1. Check the folder for uncompressed log files, compress them into a ZIP file
2. Delete the uncompressed log files after they are compressed
3. Check the folder & delete the ZIP log files that are OLDER than 6 months.
4. send mail for any error and successful

So please provide us with the script you have tried to write yourself.

Thanks.
