In Veeam 8, the current behavior is to send a failure notification email and then follow up with a second email containing the results of the retry and if that retry failed or part of it failed, the system will send a subsequent email until the retry limit has been reached. In Veeam 7, the behavior is to send a consolidated email that contains the original attempt and if it was a failure or warning, the subsequent retry (or retries) would be noted on the same email for that specific job.
I would like to request an option to have a consolidated job email notification option. It's a quality of life improvement in my mind. I can provide before/after examples as well if necessary. My daily life before Veeam 8 was to expect 6 separate job emails and I would review each email every morning. Now I have to kind of figure out which retry corresponds to which original job and how many retry emails I need to review to make sure the job got done successfully.
Thanks in advance, and if this is the wrong section to post feature requests, I apologize as I could not find a formatting/posting sticky about it.

It would be nice if I could either tell Veeam to suppress errors when they are resolved with a retry. If I can't have that, then please have Veeam send me a second notice of a successful completion in addition to the failure. At least that way I see evidence of the successful job after the failure in my email and I can rest easy instead of having to dig through the UI only to find out that everything is fine.
Part of the reason for my request is that people other than strictly IT get notices of failures with backups as a second set of eyes on things. When Veeam sends out a failure, they have to reach out to us to ask what happened and time after time we have to tell them that it's ok even though the email said it's not ok. If Veeam sent out a success when it succeeded after a retry, then it would give us all confirmation that things completed without the extra communication needing to be done.
