Hi there,

Basicly I've scripts ( .bat ) performing backups from every server, every day, and I want to recive the backup logs in my mail box.

I don't have any clue how this is made, or if it is even possible, any help would be awesome.

Thanks in advance.

You may be able to output the results of the batch file to a text file and then have either a third party app monitor that file for changes and email it, ir call the app from another batch file.

I have two batch file routines but I dont email my logs from there. I just save them on the server for review if needed.

Another thought is finding a task scheduling program that will email the results of a task. The new windows7 task scheduler has an email component but Ive not had a chance to play with it yet.

BLAT is one of a few free email programs that work from a command line and are easy to use to do this.

I hope this helps !

sorry for the long time response, I had another issues to solve.
Although, can I export the logs just by adding this cmd " > c:\app\Batch_backups\logs\backup_2.log " to the end of the .bat script?

Yes you can in most cases.

Depends on what program you are using for creating your backups.
robocopy and NTbackup both fave options for a log file.
