I'm looking for a FTP client that supports sending notification when transfers have completed. Does anyone know of one?
I'd like to trigger an email when files have finished uploading to a server.

You can also use any FTP client which supports Growl notifications (Transmit, Forklift, YummyFTP, whatnot).
In Growl's (v2) preferences, go to the Displays tab and configure the MailMe action. Then in the Applications > Application tab, select the MailMe action for all notifications or, alternatively, switch to Applications > Notifications and select the MailMe action just for the notification you want.
While I have not tried it myself, AbleFTP should do what you want. (Successful transfer should be task exit code 0.)
The same company also have a few other applications that claims to have email notification support, such as JaSFtp (link to Mac version broken on their homepage though) and Automize, which seems like overkill if you only want FTP.
I also found Captain FTP, which on the feature page claims to have email notification, but I can't find any information about that in the manual so I can't say under what circumstances it will send an email.
Captain FTP has email notification and a free download... not to bad an interface design either.
