Subject Re: Mail task on Target failure

To take a different approach: have you considered using a continuous
integration server?  This is exactly the sort of thing they're good at, and
then your ant setup could just worry about building.

I've used TeamCity and have heard good things about Jenkins (, but probably any of them could handle sending
email, since that's one of the main features people want in such a system.
