Does your system already have an email server? That will be the bulk of the work if not.

Wrench Oh dear it doesn't!

It doesn't have it so how do I start lol. The only thing I learned so far is simple echo and execute command sequences. I am still going through tutorials. So any tips how to tackle this?

Are you the administrator of this system? If you are, the easiest place to start would be installing and configuring 'ssmtp', an email "server" which is actually an email client and just logs into some other email account.

If you're not the administrator, you're stuck with begging them to install it or hacking up a script which uses whatever email client your system has available.

Instructions for either of these depend on what your system is, what is it?

so after

After I install the email, how do I go about this, should I add the grep "normal termination or "error termination" and then file.log name and which command, should I add time?
