Assuming you will run the SSIS package as an agent job, setup the job to email you when the job execution fails. The log from the job will tell you where it failed.

When you have your "successfull" flow developed, you'll notice when you click on a control flow object, another green arrow shows up. Link that to your send mail task then right-click it and select failure. Then, drag the green arrow from the send mail task and link that to the next task in your original flow.

This is just book knowledge. I have not actually done this since I rely on the logs to tell me where my SSIS package failed. Example

I just found another article you may want to take a look at. This author does a little more than I get the impression you are looking to do but should give you all of the detail you are looking for.
