I have a scheduled task that runs nightly that copies a mdb database from one server to another.  I need a way to email the results of the scheduled task to me and another so we don't have to check every morning to see if the task completed succesfully.

You could create a batch script with that information that is referenced at the end of your other task, when it kicks off it would drop the pre-canned e-mail into the Exchange pickup directory and send it out.

Neither of those solutions includes the issue of sending the results of the scheduled task.  That is the key point of the email.

If the scheduled task is a script or batch file and it outputs the results you can just pipe them (>>) into a txt file with the preformatted e-mail header and then call a script / add a line that drops the txt file into the pickup directory of the Exchange server.
