Setup SQL 2005 Express to email me when job completes sucessfully

I have a couple SQL Express 2005 installs and have a backup script that runs on a daily basis without any issues.  I would like the job to email me when it finished regardless if it completes sucessfully or fails.  Is this possible without SQL mail and installing outlook?
DECLARE @BackupFile varchar(255), @DB varchar(30), @Description varchar(255), @LogFile varchar(50)
DECLARE @Name varchar(30), @MediaName varchar(30), @BackupDirectory nvarchar(200) 
SET @BackupDirectory = 'C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL.1\MSSQL\Backup\'
--Add a list of all databases you don't want to backup to this.
DECLARE Database_CURSOR CURSOR FOR SELECT name FROM sysdatabases WHERE name <> 'Northwind'
OPEN Database_Cursor
FETCH next FROM Database_CURSOR INTO @DB
WHILE @@fetch_status = 0
 
    BEGIN
    	SET @Name = @DB + '( Daily BACKUP )'
    	SET @MediaName = @DB + '_Dump' + CONVERT(varchar, CURRENT_TIMESTAMP , 112)
    	SET @BackupFile = @BackupDirectory + + @DB + '_' + 'Full' + '_' + 
    		CONVERT(varchar, CURRENT_TIMESTAMP , 112) + '.bak'
    	SET @Description = 'Normal' + ' BACKUP at ' + CONVERT(varchar, CURRENT_TIMESTAMP) + '.' 
 
    	IF (SELECT COUNT(*) FROM msdb.dbo.backupset WHERE database_name = @DB) > 0 OR @DB = 'master'
    		BEGIN
    			SET @BackupFile = @BackupDirectory + @DB + '_' + 'Full' + '_' + 
    				CONVERT(varchar, CURRENT_TIMESTAMP , 112) + '.bak'
    			--SET some more pretty stuff for sql server.
    			SET @Description = 'Full' + ' BACKUP at ' + CONVERT(varchar, CURRENT_TIMESTAMP) + '.' 
    		END	
    	ELSE
    		BEGIN
    			SET @BackupFile = @BackupDirectory + @DB + '_' + 'Full' + '_' + 
    				CONVERT(varchar, CURRENT_TIMESTAMP , 112) + '.bak'
    			--SET some more pretty stuff for sql server.
    			SET @Description = 'Full' + ' BACKUP at ' + CONVERT(varchar, CURRENT_TIMESTAMP) + '.' 
    		END
    		BACKUP DATABASE @DB TO DISK = @BackupFile 
    		WITH NAME = @Name, DESCRIPTION = @Description , 
    		MEDIANAME = @MediaName, MEDIADESCRIPTION = @Description , 
    		STATS = 10
    	FETCH next FROM Database_CURSOR INTO @DB
 
EXECUTE master.dbo.xp_delete_file 0,N'C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL.1\MSSQL\Backup',N'bak',N'2008-09-16T12:40:57' 
 
 
END
CLOSE Database_Cursor
DEALLOCATE Database_Cursor

Can try using CDO...   and Office Automation procedures





Declare @OA_Status int
Declare @MailID int
Declare @SenderAddress varchar(100)
Declare @RecipientAddress varchar(100)
Declare @Subject varchar(200)
Declare @Body varchar(8000)
declare @CC varchar(100)
declare @BCC varchar(100)
 
set @SenderAddress='mark.wills@somewhere.else' 
set @RecipientAddress = 'mark.wills@somewhere.else' 
set @Subject='SQL Mail Test'
set @body='Hello, this is a test email from SQL Server'
set @CC  = null
set @BCC  = null
 
EXEC @OA_Status = sp_OACreate 'CDO.Message', @MailID OUT
EXEC @OA_Status = sp_OASetProperty @MailID, 'From',@senderaddress
EXEC @OA_Status = sp_OASetProperty @MailID, 'TextBody', @Body
EXEC @OA_Status = sp_OASetProperty @MailID, 'BCC',@BCC
EXEC @OA_Status = sp_OASetProperty @MailID, 'CC', @CC
EXEC @OA_Status = sp_OASetProperty @MailID, 'Subject', @Subject
EXEC @OA_Status = sp_OASetProperty @MailID, 'To', @recipientAddress
EXEC @OA_Status = sp_OAMethod @MailID, 'Send', NULL
EXEC @OA_Status = sp_OADestroy @MailID

You may want to look at xp_smtp_sendmail -- open source app. It was designed back for SQL 7 and 2000, but will still work with 2005. You just have to change the path.

XPSMTP provides a SMTP based SQL Mail solution for sending MIME based email over SMTP, implemented as an Extended Stored Procedure.

That does work well... Used to use it some time back, and had almost forgotten all about it.
