[MERGED] set different sender Email address

Post by GL@MO » Mar 29, 2016 6:20 am

Good morning,

Is it possible to set a different sender email address for VEB? At the moment it is the same than my recipients email address and in my configuration it is a distribution group.
I normally sign the senders Email Address with the device name where it is coming from.

if not: feel free to use this as a feature request :D

Thanks for any help!

Guido


VEB 1.5.0.306

Hi Guido,

Currently its not possible, so your workaround to use the distribution list seems to be valid. As for the name of the machine information – it should be included into email notification subject by default.

Is it possible to add this as a feature request for VEB?

Thumbs up for the feature, I've tested it now a few days and I really like it in fact except for one little thing.
Yes it had been spoken, but it is the "from" feature.
In our case we have a mailbox where all emails from vbr and veb and even other backup solutions are coming from.
We have a script that puts the mail in the folder for the customer and our monitoring is scanning those for the status of the backup.
So this is why I for myself would like to have this option because the script is going through "where does it come from" "what says the subject" "alright, move to this folder".
Simple said. For now we are taking the script I wrote, there is the from and to option included and it works great. We do integrate veb to vbr in this case there is no need for that option but some customers do not have vbr not even esx or hyper-v and we made really positive results with veb.
So yes I would have it as a feature request and hey, when I can achieve it with a script, I think you can do this easily, too :)

Yup, it’s possible. There is a separate topic you can check for the script examples.

[MERGED] VEP 1.5 E-mail Notifications - Multiple Recipients

Post by rsmith.rdi » Mar 30, 2016 5:23 pm

The new native e-mail notification is awesome. The report looks just like a VBR notification... BUT! There needs to be support for multiple e-mail addresses. Sometimes a distribution list doesn't include everyone that needs to be notified. Example... internal recipients and an external contractor with a e-mail outside of the primary recipient domain.

[MERGED] Email notification settings.

Post by pawell » Mar 31, 2016 11:24 am

Hi. I have a couple of questions about email notification.
1) Is there any way to specify sender's e-mail address that will be different from recipient's address? Now I get mails from me about backup status and it is confusing me.
2) Is there any way to deploy email notification config across all my servers? Config file or something like that.

Not at this moment, and I don't know if it is planned in the future or not.

Best is to work with a distribution group for now

cheers

Mike

[MERGED] Send emails to a different email address

Post by mvalpreda » Apr 22, 2016 1:07 am

Trying to set up email notifications on Endpoint Backup. I want to have emails come from backups@domain-a.com and go to alerts@domain-b.com. Is that possible? Or do the notifications always go to the same email that generates them?

Do this so I can sort the backup alerts from different customers.

Yes, you can use distribution groups for that in the current release.
