I'm using Windows Server Backup to backup a server in a test environment.  What's the simplest way to have it send me an email notification when the backup the has completed. I would like to get the notification whether the backup was successful or not and include a log.  Ideally, I should be able to specify one or more email addresses and set the sender's name and subject.

Simplest Way

I would use Windows Task Scheduler to monitor backup operation events and get emails notification through that.

Have a look on following link:

Thanks everyone,

The Windows Task Scheduler method is best suited to my purposes and I'm glad I know about the Event trigger.  Should be very useful for many things.
