Email backup reports not sent unless Retrospect is running? in Professional Posted January 24 · Report reply I configured a daily email report to be sent at 7:00 AM, as shown in the attached screenshot. However, it appears that the email is sent only if the full Retrospect application is open at the requested time. I would have expected that the email would be generated by a small background process, such as retrorun.exe instead of the full app. If this it is intended that the email status requires the full app to be running, then I would like to submit a feature request that the task of sending the status email be moved to retrorun so that the main app does not have to be running.
