Notification of scheduled jobs

I would like to get an email notification when a scheduled job completes/fails. Someone suggested using Growl. I installed Growl (1.1.4) and can get it to pop-up a window on these events, but when I set theme to MailMe I get the sound from that theme but no email message is sent (hitting the preview button also does nothing so I am going to post in the Growl forum as well).

Even if I could get Growl to work I hat wasting system resources just to have these messages sent and would probably prefer a shell script. I can probably write the email sending part (although I would love some sample code to get started), but how do I tell if the jobs succeeded/failed as Growl does (I dont want to email the entire log)?
