MDT: Deployment Success/Error Mail notification

Hello Community, I would like to extend our MDT mail notification and came across this link:

https://www.systanddeploy.com/2017/03/mdt-monitoring-deployment-successerror.html

I would like to call the whole thing as a tasksequence at the end of the deployment, and not have to enter the computer name manually, but that the $env:COMPUTERNAME is taken from MDT.

Can someone help me to adapt the script so that the XML file with the parameters is already part of the PS script, and that as mentioned above the $env:COMPUTERNAME is taken instead of the manual entry.

I thank you already for your support.

Best thanks
Stefan

    Hi, @Stefan Wehrli

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Q&A forum.

    It seems it's difficult to get the computer name and add the computer to the script because the script is running on the other computer.
    We may consider to run a script on the computer we are deploying, such as: add a ZTISendmail application as the final step of the task sequence like this article:
