Email out after second resubmit, in spite of a time stamp update.

I have a resubmit script renames files in a directory, I want to notify via email the third time. I was just going to run the script in cron every 15 minutes but the timestamp thing is killing me since it updates each time.

this can't be changed it hits a couple of jar files and tries to resubmit these files. It updates the time stamp. Each time the is run. If they are good they move on in the process, if they error again I need a way to send an email out on the third time the resubmit runs and hits the same files. How can I alert on these guys if the timestamp is updated everytime the resubmit runs?
