Windows Server Backup notification

I'm using Windows Server Backup to backup a server in a test environment.  What's the simplest way to have it send me an email notification when the backup the has completed. I would like to get the notification whether the backup was successful or not and include a log.  Ideally, I should be able to specify one or more email addresses and set the sender's name and subject.

Thanks everyone,

The Windows Task Scheduler method is best suited to my purposes and I'm glad I know about the Event trigger.  Should be very useful for many things.
in symnatec backup exec you can configure notification and add the backup server IP in exchange relay.
