List skipped files in Backup Exec email alert

We're using Backup Exec 12.5 with email alerts on non-success jobs. Works great with the exception that "completed successfully.. following conditions" alerts showing skipped files only shows the number of files skipped. This forces us to log into the Backup Exec server to find out if the skipped file alert is serious or not.

Is there a way to have BE list the skipped files in the email alert?

I've looked and can't find a way.

I get emailalerts of each of my backup jobs that attaches the report as html.

it lists the summary and if you expand , also gives the file names not backed up!

check the following:
from tools, options;

Click Job Log;

there are 4 options:
Information to include in log:
]Summary Information Only
Summary Information  and directories processed
Summary Information , directories , and files processed processed
Summary Information , directories , files and file details

select one of the desired and submit okay.

carefull the above 2 options creates very large job logs.
