Hi Erenim, thanks for you support.

I configured backup job on the machine that option in Setting but... I think the rest will continue to be alerted backup job in Options- as -Email Notifications is enabled ( if not activated will not let set in the Storage tab)

Basically, custom job settings should override the global ones, however currently this does not work so and will be addressed in v9.

Well, I just upgraded to Veeam v9 and guess what? THIS PROBLEM IS STILL NOT FIXED. Why am I not surprised? (for those just coming upon this thread, the short version is that B&R jobs have different notification checkboxes for various types, and UN-checking "notify on success" does not work... you still get an email on success).

It is BEYOND RIDICULOUS that Veeam has been kicking this simple bug down the road for well over a year now, first promising it in a v8 patch, then in the next release. Well, here we are, and it's still broken. Please tell me I'm missing something obvious and it really is fixed, because I'm still getting notified for successful jobs that have "notify on success" UNchecked after upgrading to v9. And Veeam, if you're NOT going to fix this BUG, just remove the option from the UI please instead of making empty promises.

Well crap. Figures I would spout off before trying a few things. Looks like this IS fixed, but you have to open the job and save it again. Thanks, Veeam. Sorry for the rant!

Well double crap. Thought it was fixed, but it's not. For some reason it skipped the notification for the first run after I re-saved the job, so it was a false positive. Can someone from Veeam tell me if this issue is supposed to be fixed in v9, or did it get put-off again?

Jim, please check whether e-mail subjects in global and custom (job) notification settings match. The way it works in v9 is as follows: custom job settings override the global ones provided the same sender address and exact same subjects are specified in both places.

Thanks. In my case the subject is exactly the same in the job and global settings: [%JobResult%] %JobName% (%VmCount% VMs) %Issues%

Not sure what you mean by "the same sender address" as you can't change the sender address within the job. And to be clear, I have "notify on success" enabled globally, but want to suppress it for specific jobs. Even if the logic works as you say in v9 (but doesn't seem to for me), the UI is broken as it indicates something that is not true.

Meant recipient address, of course, sorry for confusion. If you specify the same address, subjects do match, you clear the 'Notify on success' check box in the job settings and still get duplicate e-mails for successful jobs, please contact support and provide your case ID here.

Ah, thanks for the clarification. In my case the recipient address in the job is blank (and since it delivered fine to the recipient defined globally, I assumed that was the proper way to use it in case I ever wanted to change the recipient for all jobs). I'll try explicitly setting it and see what happens. By the way, if this works, the person in charge of that UI/Logic should be reprimanded. Completely un-intuitive!

OK, so this seems to be the real issue. UI should not allow empty recipient address, this is clearly an input validation bug. Because of your settings, per-job settings were simply never used (as there were no recipients to send them to), and the notifications you were getting were still "global" ones, not job-level.

Thanks Anton. That was it, and it makes perfect sense.
