It depends on your e-mail notifier.  If its a listener and throwing away
messageLogged events, then it wouldn't save echo's.

The code listed in the current Ant FAQ simply e-mails the build log file
(specified with -logfile <log file name>).  The one that I added recently
(in the nightly builds, not in a release version yet) doesn't require that
the results be captured to a log file, and sends what you see on the
console. You'd simply do this:

    ant -logger

See the Ant FAQ for a pointer to the Loggers & Listeners page that describes
this one and the others available.

And you could capture the log and send it from a wrapper shell script, which
is what I think Stephane is referring to.
