Receiving Export Reports

Veeam Explorer for Microsoft Exchange can deliver reports that show summary information about export operations.

Consider the following:

  • If you want export reports to be delivered, make sure to configure an SMTP server in Veeam Explorer for Microsoft Exchange and/or Veeam Backup & Replication notification settings.

For more information, see the Configuring SMTP Settings section of this guide and the Configuring Global Email Notification Settings section of the Veeam Backup & Replication User Guide.

  • A server with Veeam Explorer for Microsoft Exchange and Veeam Backup & Replication must be in a domain.
  • Export reports are delivered automatically upon each export session.

You can use Export to Custom Location or 1-Click Export.

  • Recipients of the report are chosen as follows:
  • The recipient is always the current user account under which Veeam Explorer for Microsoft Exchange is running when using only Veeam Explorer for Microsoft Exchange notification settings.
  • The recipient is always the user account provided in Veeam Backup & Replication notification settings when using only Veeam Backup & Replication settings.
  • If you have configured both Veeam Explorer for Microsoft Exchange and Veeam Backup & Replication notification settings, the report will be sent to both recipients.

The following table lists fields that are shown in the report.
