I have a 3 step job which is failing on step 2.
"E:\Cognos\Cmd\CB\PPES_Accounts_USA.cmd  Sales_XE;\\bluestone\Cubes\Accounts_XE;E:\Cognos\Sales_XE\Logs\PPES_Update_Accounts.log"

The "PPES_Update_Accounts.log" file shows that all completed. And I can see that the relevant files have been updated.

I suspect that the job started failing last week after I changed the notification type from SQL Mail to DBMail.
Other jobs that send DBmail and SQL Mail complete successfully.

When the problem happened, I think I had the notification set to use DBmail but the operator that I had chosen was not yet defined in the Operators Group.
