You want an SMTP mailer program

There are dozens around. I use BLAT from Sourceforge.net. Just create a batch file to run ntbackup and then run Blat from within the batch file to mail the log as an attachment once the backup is completed.

Command-line switches in ntbackup will let you specify the log file.

sendmail problem...

by Jlvazquez825 In reply to backup email notification ...

I'm using sendmail.. is very easy to use but I found that it won't understand * wildcards as in the case of ntbackup logs it will keep the latatest 10 logs so I'm feeding the backup*.log filename to sendmail but it always gives me an error, but when I give it the actual name like backup08.log it works just find.. does anyone has an alternative to this?.. also how could I append the date to the log filename on ntbackup?

thanks
