Email notifications are not available in the standalone product. You should be using integration with VBR to get them. Thanks!

You can achieve this by using Eventlog Inspector (free for non-commercial use).

There is indeed no such functionality in the product, so your post is treated as a feature request. You might want to check possible workarounds desribed here. Thanks!

Having email to show backup success or failure is essential when dealing with hundreds of computers. I'd love to have this feature added. I would think that it would be very simple to implement. If not email, a simple popup on the screen to show that the backup was successful would be very helpful as well. This is the main reason I have not started using this product across our domain. I have no way to monitor it.

Hi Tom,

Fair, in other hand if you are using Veeam B&R repository as a target destination you get global email notification as a part of this integration. Thanks.

We're currently using Veeam B&R with VEB and do indeed get email notifications, however I don't see any way to configure granular email settings for each endpoint job. With other B&R jobs it's possible to configure special notification settings outside the global settings, but that doesn't seem to be possible with Endpoint backups. Basically we're forced to rely on the global notification settings for VEB jobs, which is unfortunate.
Edit: at the very least it would be nice, in my case anyway, to have separate notification settings for endpoint jobs in general. It wouldn't need to be configurable for each and every endpoint job.

That’s true - VEB job is not like a regular backup job in VBR since it’s managed by the VEB itself, so global notification is the only possible solution right now. There is a workaround but that involves custom scripting at the VEB's end.

I'm came from Acrons TrueImage backup. I still use it for main desktop PC because of few neat features that I like and this is ( email notification) is one of them.
With my work laptop and tablet I use Endpoint Desktop and I quite like the simplicity.

+1000 for this feature request.

In case of the True Image notification email;
It reports when it started how it goes ( Just like the restore point detail page show progress and duration whcih is only the final result) and subject line sage whcih backup was successful or failed.,


As I schedule TrueImage on weekly basis at Saturday night when I just keep PC on that day and automatically send me email and showdown when done after email whcih is very handy.


Thanks

Guys,

The most requested feature is now available, the only thing you need to do is upgrade to the newly released VEB 1.5 :wink:

Soooooooooooo close. Seriously, you can only email yourself??!?!?!?!?!? That's just being petty Veeam. It CAN'T be THAT difficult to create an additional "To:' field. Restricting the email notifications to only send to yourself it worthless in an SMB environment. :(

Hi cjezell,

Can you elaborate on how you want to configure the email reporting in your environment please?

Sure thing. It would be great to have the ability to specify where the emails go, instead of them just defaulting to the account whose credentials you put in. Also, it would be nice to be able to specify successful backup emails to one address, and failures to another. We have successful backup notifications go to an email address that creates and then immediately closes a ticket in our RMM system. This way, we have a record of the successful backup notification. Failures go to our regular support queue and a ticket gets created for us to work. We use a simple IMAP account to send out the notifications from the software, but that account never gets checked for incoming email, because it should never actually receive any emails, it's only used for outbound smtp to our ticketing system.

I have attached a couple of examples of how a competing product handles email notifications. I hope this helps.
