You could also pick different sounds to use.  In the past, I'd edited
sounds, so the successful notifications were muted tones, but the
failure alerts were louder.  These days I remove most of the sounds, so
that just important alerts make a noise.

[tim at localhost ~]$ uname -r

Don't send private replies to my address, the mailbox is ignored.  I
read messages from the public lists.
