I am looking for a way to query the results of a number of scheduled tasks. There are three essentials scheduled tasks on one of our servers, and I am building a way for us to easily monitor these. My end goal is to use the mailsend.exe program to automatically email us the results of these scheduled tasks (ie, mailsend.exe will be a scheduled task).

Therefore I need to know how to query the results of these scheduled tasks. There is a program called Log Parser that would work perfectly if I could find out how to create a "scheduled task audit policy" or something like that in MMC.

The Scheduled Tasks logfile is located at %systemroot%\SchedLgU.Txt.  You should be able to pull results out of it by searching on the names of the tasks.

Shift-3, that is interesting, I haven't seen that file before. Is there a way a batch file can search through this. Sort of like grep on linux?

Yes, though it is tricky since the status messages and the names of the tasks appear on different lines.  This script looks like it might work:
