emai backup logs with smtp mail apps

By Jlvazquez825 ·
guys I've used two different smtp apps to email the ntbackup logs, the problem is that either "sendmail" or "mailsend" don't understand wildcards as attachments therefore gives me an error when trying to send logs as backup*.log...
ntbackup creates logs in the format backup01 to backup10 so I send the attachment as backup*.log but like I said neither program are sending the logs, however if I send the log as backup01.log it sends it just find... could someone point me to a different app I could use for this or a different method of doing this?

thanks

modify ntbackup registry...

by Jlvazquez825 In reply to emai backup logs with smt ...

well I kind of found the solution and is editing a registry key that pretty much sets the amount of logs that ntbackup uses, and force it to use only one: HKCU\Software\Microsoft\NTbackup\Log Files\Log File Count I basically use the same "sendmail" application only I'm forcing ntbackup to create only one backup log instead of 10

thanks
