I'm using a short lftp script on cron to download files after they are uploaded to an ftp server.

lftp -u user,pass sftp://server:port -e 'mget -c -E path/to/file/*.zip -O "/path/to/download/destination/"'

I have sendmail configured corrently and want to use it to send an email after the transfer is complete, but I can't figure out how to get the error codes to work, it appears it returns the same code regardless of whether it returns a file.
