Im currently running a Maintenance Plan on SQL Server that does the following:

  • 1 daily full backup

  • Hourly transaction log backup

  • 1 daily maintenance cleanup

On the reporting options I have it set up to send a report to an email recipient, so now I'm getting an email hourly.

Is it possible to receive a summary email, for example at the end of the day with results of all the sub plans? Any suggestion on how to accomplish something similar?

You can start from this sql server central article: Automating SQL Server Health Check (Subscription required). The script will send you email which contains a summary of your jobs, disk space etc. You can create a job that run the stored procedure and schedule it to run once a day so that you will get the report in your inbox.
