Notification Settings for Backup Policy
You can specify email notification settings for the backup policy. If you enable notification settings, Veeam Backup & Replication will send a daily email report with backup policy statistics to a specified email address. The report contains cumulative statistics for backup job sessions performed for the last 24-hour period on computers to which the backup policy is applied.
Email reports with backup policy statistics will be sent if you configure global email notification settings in Veeam Backup & Replication. For more information, see the Configuring Global Email Notification Settings section in the Veeam Backup & Replication User Guide.
After you enable notification settings for the backup policy, Veeam Backup & Replication will send reports with the backup policy statistics to email addresses specified in global email notification settings and email addresses specified in the backup policy settings.
