I won' t make the script because I just found a VBS one pretty nice. since both NTBackup and the script are run by the task scheduler in the same command file, the mail will be sent right after the backup ends.

This will probably best your best solution.

Hello,

Can you tell us what backup software you are using ?
If it's NTBackup, we can write a Blat script that send the last report in your mailbox.

Thank you! I was actually trying to implement this the other day but ran into some trouble... Namely, how do u schedule an event after nt backup completes? Is it possible to get an event viever entry ibstead of an email? What are the domain name and email that i need to adjust in the sample script? Is it local domain an destination email?

Sorry to ask so many questions...
