Read the samba book about variables (section 4 or there about) and about
preexec and postexec parameters.
Roughly, it goes like this:
preexec = echo %U at %m accessed this printer at %T >> PrinterLogFile
postexec = echo You have printed a job | mail -s "Jobs Done!" %U;\
           echo %U at %m finished a print job at %T >> PrinterLogFile

There are many other variables you can access this way.
As a newbie, you gotta read the book.
