I managed to get the script to work, well the basic Render and Email script that ships with AE. I had to get my office to set up a special email account for it though that didnt require TLS etc...
But at least it works now
very happy about it, and such a useful script.
I was wondering however if there is a way to attach a report to the email, perhaps an error report if a render is unsuccessful. When testing the Render and Email script the first time, the render crashed as some frames were still being exported from maya...and the render just stopped, no email was sent.
If this had happened and I had gone away from the computer...I would have just thought my render had not been completed, when in fact it had crashed...
Does a script like this exist?
