Multiple dependant projects generate one email

I have 4 projects which comprise a larger project.
1) Compile code
2) test code in one environment
3) test code in second environment
4) package up all the code for deployment

steps 2 and 3 take place on two different machines and happen at the same time.

Currently I send an email with the status of each step, pass/fail.

I would like one email, that indicates the overall status of the build.

So if the compile fails, one emails is sent,

if step 2 fails, and step 3 passes one email

if step 2 passes and step 3 fails, one email

if step 2 and step 3 both fail, one email

and lastly if step 4 fails, there is one email.

if step 4 passes, one email is sent with an overall success.

my question is how to handle the situation in bold font?

Can anyone offer a suggestion?  Notification rules just don't go deep enough for this

If you do not run 4 build if dependency has failed, you can subscribe only to notifications for build configuration 4 (with option send notification when "The build fails to start") and not subscribe for 1, 2 or 3. In this case you will receive one notification of build status. Isn't it an option?

It tells me thing did not succeed, but not why....

It would be nice to know which step failed and to get the information from it.
