-- send-mail-url not supported?

#1

I am running Duplicati since a few days and I have to say that this is really a great tool to backup data and manage stuff around data backup!

Yesterday I turned on email-notifications for my backup-job which works fine - but it does bring some warnings which I don’t understand:

These German messages say that “––send-mail-url”, " --–send-mail-password" and “––send-mail-subject” are not supported an therefore ignored …

But I do receive these emails - so how can those options be ignored or not supported?! They are working!

What I should have mentioned is that I have configured notifications within the settings area as well as within the backup job.

Can this cause any issues?

It looks like the commands in the error message have 3 dashes instead of 2. Either in the general settings or the backup job’s advanced options you should remove one dash.

You were right… so stupid that I did not check the stuff I copied from the web carefully enough.

Sorry for wasting your time!

Now the result within the email report is “success”.
