Uh, shell script?

Define "best".

A simple Forum (or Google) search should find
many shell scripts which send e-mail. You
might look for "mailx".

If you do this, you should run the whole script in the background. Then the script will just do the fbackup and check, sequentially.

See this thread for fbackup status checking:
