I have used this article :

http://www.smallbizserver.net/Default.aspx?tabid=266&articleType=ArticleView&articleId=143

But I have also used another way back that I can't find that does the same thing without the double notifications or when the system reboots sends out the notifications again.

I want to set up success email notification on SBS backups.  I am pretty sure the first time I did it, it was from the cmd prompt and event sinks?  

Any help is appreciated.  Thanks.

There's really no need to set up a SEPARATE notification when the SBS Backup completes successfully.  If you have run the Configure Monitoring and Reporting Wizard, you would normally get a Server Status Report at 6:00am each morning that indicates whether the SBS Backup ran successfully.  Additionally, if you configure the "Alert Notification" in that wizard you will get an immediate email alert when the backup fails.

I have the alert for fail, some clients just like to know it worked.  I don't want the daily SBS report, we do those weekly.  

KCTS, that is not the one I was looking for.  I wish I could remember where I found it becuase it works great.
