Jay, take a look at
<http://jakarta.apache.org/jyve-faq/Turbine/screen/DisplayQuestionAnswer/action/SetAll/project_id/2/faq_id/16/topic_id/196/question_id/741>.

Basically, attach a build listener and send your mail in
buildFinished. To closer model

The build listener could send its mail either in buildFinished or when
the task with recording="off" gets executed - whatever happens first.

Adding some "make -k" like functionality to Ant has been on the TODO
list for quite some time now, but it's quite far towards the end (of
my private version).

Given that there is a FAQ entry for the functionality you want (feel
free to ad a version using org.apache.tools.mail instead of javamail
if you happen to write one BTW, yet another point from my TODO list)
...

I'm sure, I've pointed others to the FAQ on this before - and Will has
sent his code to this group, so you must have searched for the wrong
keywords 8-).
