Scripting and the Log

I'm a scripting newbie (though a programmer of other stuff for 40 years: remember Fortran?) and have question:

I'd like to add notification to the SD scripts to send me email upon script completion with a summary of the results: xx files (or GB) copied or ERROR SD did not complete type of thing. Can you provide a quick pointer on how to do that?

Second: is there a way to make the LOG less verbose? If I'm just backing up my iTunes music library (on a separate drive from my system), apparently I first have to make the script "ignore" everything, then add a "copy" for the music directory (is that correct). When I look at the log, it literally has hundreds of "ignored" entries to scan through to find the few "copied" entries. Is there a way to shorten the log?
