How to email the backup result by attachment in Backup exec

MezzutOzil asked
This is using Symantec Backup Exec 2010 r3 on windows 2008 r2 64-bit server. My management want to have an email with attachment showing the backup selection list send to a group of users. I managed to setup the email settings, with all the given users as recipient. But, the Symantec default setting only allow email the result in text format, how can I achieve the given task by sending an attachment showing the result of all the selection list?

Thanks in advance for help.

Found the answer:

  Yes, I have, here's the steps I took to configure it:

    * E-mail and Pager Notification configured in the Tools Menu and sent the test mails and all were received.
    * I then created users to receive notification by setting up the Recipients from the Tools Menu.
    * I enabled notification in the Backup Job's options and ticked the "include Job log" option.
