I have a Scheduled Task that runs a XML file that P2Vs a server each night, what Im trying to accomplish to have something in the XML file so when it completes it will email me with something telling me the job completed. It would also be nice to attach the Windows  Scheduled Task log file.

I guess I dont have to use the XML file to send this email if you have any other ideas? It would be nice if Windows had a way to send an mail once the Scheduled Task was finished&. Im not a programmer so this is a tuff task for me.

Here is the XML code running..

<p2v uninstallAgentOnSuccess="0" version="2.2" xmlns="http://www.vmware.com/v2/sysimage/p2v" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:schemaLocation="http://www.vmware.com/v2/sysimage/p2v p2vJob.xsd" xsi:type="P2VJob">

    </volumesToClone>

Seems like the P2V program, or whatever knows when things are "done" would have to send the mail.  You could have the schedulers send an email at a certain amount of time later, when you know the job should be done.  It could attach the log which would show if it actually did complete.  You would need a "sendmail" command line type program to send the email.  (ie no GUI since the scheduler runs commands)
