Only for Windows Server 2008As you probably know it is possible to send e-mails from the Windows Task Scheduler. Just specify From and To e-mail addresses, a Subject and body text. Do not forget to fill in the SMTP server. If your task logs it's actions in a log file, you can attach the file using the Browse button.
If you want to specify multiple recipients for the e-mail, you can do so by separating the To e-mail addresses by a Semicolon (;).
