GUI Problem? (shows backups successful - with warnings)

Hi -

All of a sudden I'm seeing that all backups on a particular database are 'sucessful - with warnings'; yet the emails coming to me about those backups are all marked 'successful'. :shock:

Which is correct - the GUI or the email?

If the GUI, how do I ascertain what the nature of the warning is?

Thanks and regards.

    Hi Randy,

    If you double click the entry in the activity history pane in the UI, you'll see details of that task. The log will detail the warning (typically: short passwords are / there was a network glitch but everything worked out in the end / couldn't write the copy but the main backup was successful).

    The warning is 151, mailto error, user unknown.
    However, this makes no sense as I am receiving emails from this server; in fact just to be sure I opened up options and sent a test email. Rec'd it a few minutes later.

    I figured it out; some of the addresses were using expired aliases
