You can do that with PowerShell:
Send-MailMessage -SmtpServer -To "" -From "" -CC "" -Subject "Error in job" -Body "Whatsoever happened" 

Open in new window

Call this as a failure operation for each job step.

HI Qlemo,

Can I do this in Job as ActiveXscript using Vb script?

Qlemo"Batchelor", Developer and EE Topic AdvisorCommented:
Possible, but more cumbersome. Most source examples for VBS use CDO for sending mails, like in (just one of many you'll find on EE).

Using the stored procedure sp_sendmail is another way, but I guess you do not want to use that (as it is server-based).
