Enabling Email Notifications 

To enable email notifications:

  1. Double-click the Veeam Endpoint Backup icon in the system tray or right-click the Veeam Endpoint Backup icon in the system tray and select Control Panel.
  2. At the top of the window, click the Settings tab.
  3. In the Notifications section, select the Enable email notifications check box and click the Configure and test link.
  4. In the Configure and test email notifications window, in the Email settings section, specify the recipient address.
  5. If the SMTP server requires authentication, specify a password for the account that has rights to access the SMTP server.
  6. Specify a subject for the sent message. You can use the following variables in the subject:
  1. %ComputerName%
  2. %JobResult%
  3. %CompletionTime%
  1. In the Notify on section, select the Success, Warning and/or Error check boxes to receive email notification if a job is run successfully, not successfully or with a warning.
  2. Click Configure. Veeam Endpoint Backup will try to automatically detect SMTP server settings. If the SMTP server settings are detected successfully, Veeam Endpoint Backup will display the settings (SMTP server name, port and user name), send a test message to the specified email address and save the email notification settings in the database.

You can change automatically detected settings in the SMTP server settings section. You can perform this operation manually at any time. To learn more, see Configuring SMTP Server Settings.

If the SMTP server settings are not validated for some reason, Veeam Endpoint Backup will display a link to the following Veeam Knowledge Base article: https://www.veeam.com/kb2109. You can refer to this article for additional information on the SMTP server settings configuration.

To disable email notifications, clear the Enable email notifications check box in the Settings tab of the Control Panel. Current email notifications configuration will remain saved in the Veeam Endpoint Backup database.

Configuring SMTP Server Settings

When you specify recipient email address, Veeam Endpoint Backup tries to automatically detect settings to connect to the SMTP server. You can change automatically detected settings, for example, when Veeam Endpoint Backup does not detect correct settings for some reason.

To configure SMTP server settings:

  1. Click the Show SMTP server settings link.
  2. Enter a full DNS name or IP address of the SMTP server that will be used for sending email notifications.
  3. Specify the port number for the SMTP server.
  4. Specify a user name for the account that has rights to access the SMTP server.
  5. To use a secure SSL/TLS connection for email operations, select the Use secure connection check box.
  6. Click Test Message to validate the SMTP server settings.

Enabling Email Notifications Tip:

To change the email notification settings, clear the entered values from the SMTP server DNS name or IP address, Port and User name fields, enter the new recipient address and click Configure. Veeam Endpoint Backup will try to detect settings for the specified email address.
