[Veritas-bu] NetBackup & Blat

I'm using blat, but not nbmail.cmd
I have custom scripts that run with "at" or netbackup scheduler and I have
put the blat inside them. 
Netbackup sent one email for every job. And for me this makes netbackup the
biggest spammer at my network :)

We have heard from customers that they would like us to remove our
requirement that you install a third party tool like blat in order to
have NetBackup send mail on Windows.

In fact this improvement is the third most popular idea for NetBackup
on our Ideas portal,
http://www.symantec.com/connect/idea/mail-notification .

So we're looking at it and I have a question. The nbmail.cmd script is
used by NetBackup processes to send mail from NetBackup. Do you use
nbmail.cmd from other scripts you have written for backup & recovery
operations? What do these scripts do?

You can reply to the list or if you prefer feel free to email me directly.

Thanks for your feedback. If you have more ideas for improvements to
NetBackup be sure and add them to the Ideas portal
