How about this (not checked, just the general idea):

      $alertaddr = "tomalock@stripped";
      $from = "php@yourdomain";
      if (mysql_ping($db)) {
          $body = mysql_error();
             mail($alertaddr, "MySQL error", $body, 
               "From: $from\nReturn-Path: <$from>");
          echo "<b>".mysql_error()."</b>";
