    Newly learning to use unix at work, i am trying to configure the unix server to send mails to me when backups complete. Unsure how to do this, wondering if anyone can assist please.

    The server is running tru64.

    How do you start the backup? Is the backup run by some script? If so, you could add the mail part ti that script.

    The backup is run by a script that was already in place before i started, just do not know the command i should add to get a mail at the end of the script.

    Take a look at the mail command:
    Code:
    man mail
