Email Notification


Recommended Posts

I'm trying to configure Retrospect to email me with Backup results. I've Configured Preferences Notification Email and entered my email parameters. Now, according to the Online Help, I need to place an entry in the XP Scheduler. The instructions are straight forward with one critical exception. I'm instructed to enter the following commands in the RUN field:


cmd /c RetroEventHandler.bat



My question is, how do I enter a two line command?

I'm still looking, hoping, for help on how to generate Retrospect email notifications of completed tasks. I'd like Retrospect to email me when it completes a successful backup operation, or when it encounters a problem during backup. I've already gone through Configure | Preferences | Email, but that didn't work. I also read the online Help documentation, which discusses the topics outlined in my first append. Obviously, there's a disconnect between the program and Help screens.


Interestingly, I installed Retrospect v7.0 on my friend's machine and enabled email notification ONLY via the Configure | Preferences approach. On his machine, he receives notifications of both successful and unsuccessful Retrospect events.


I'm curious as to why the manual and Help facilities appear to contradict one another; how to enter the two-line Help scenario; and why I can't get my v6.5 to work at all.
