Notification of scheduled jobs

I would like to get an email notification when a scheduled job completes/fails. Someone suggested using Growl. I installed Growl (1.1.4) and can get it to pop-up a window on these events, but when I set theme to MailMe I get the sound from that theme but no email message is sent (hitting the preview button also does nothing so I am going to post in the Growl forum as well).

Even if I could get Growl to work I hat wasting system resources just to have these messages sent and would probably prefer a shell script. I can probably write the email sending part (although I would love some sample code to get started), but how do I tell if the jobs succeeded/failed as Growl does (I dont want to email the entire log)?

Thanks

You'd have to rework the scheduled job applescript, and that would only work for scheduled copies. I'd seriously suggest figuring out what's wrong with Growl's MailMe action instead: Growl does not use significant system resources and performs many useful functions...

I don't know, because I don't know what could be wrong. Do you have Apple Mail configured with your account information? It might require that.

Non e-mail notification available?

This seems the best thread to ask if there's any other automatic notification that a backup has been accomplished or has failed other than the e-mail option asked about here. With automatic backups, I'll tend to forget to check it every week (in my case) and wouldn't want any surprises when a crash occurs later and I need to restore.

I'd love for this to be automatic, otherwise, I'll add a reminder to iCal to check the log.

Growl really does work fine, is very configurable, and will do other types of notifications other than email.

Thanks. But can you check that Growl link? I get "Forbidden
You don't have permission to access / on this server., (etc.)" in both Safari and Firefox.

It's possibly something on their end because even when Googling the site, the link from a MacWorld site comes up the same. That would mean it isn't your problem, but a warning here couldn't hurt.

The link is fine, but the Growl site seems to be down. I'm sure it'll be back.
