Hello, how are you ??
Is there a possiblity to change the email subject or email body to inform about the "result", "size" ot "time" of backup ??
In Pushbullet notifications, we receive something "... succesfully...." but in mail only "Akeeba Solo has completed backing up your site ...."

Would be fantastic to say the result+size of backup (to control if there is somtehing strange) , and the time duration of the backup...

Is possible ??
Thanks
Carlos

The backup completion email will only be sent when the backup completes. If the backup completes it is, by definition, successful.

If the backup DOES NOT complete (it fails) PHP execution has already stopped. Therefore we can't send an email since, well, our software is no longer running at this point.

This is why we have the failed backup checks. This needs to run after the point in time where you reasonably expect the backup to be complete. If it finds a failed backup it will email you that a backup is failed.

You can of course customize the language of the emails as you see fit, in the System Configuration of Akeeba Solo.

No, the size of the backup cannot be included in either the email subject or body.

Email subject
Leave blank to use default. You can use all variables you can use for naming archive files, e.g. [HOST] and [DATE] – but also ALL other variables: [HOST], [DATE], [YEAR], [MONTH], [DAY], [WEEK], [WEEKDAY], [RANDOM], [TIME], [TIME_TZ], [TZ], [GMT_OFFSET], [TZ-RAW], [VERSION], [PLATFORM_NAME], [PLATFORM_VERSION], [SITENAME]

Email body
Leave blank to use default. You can use all of variables you can use for naming archive files, e.g. [HOST] and [DATE] – but also ALL other variables: [HOST], [DATE], [YEAR], [MONTH], [DAY], [WEEK], [WEEKDAY], [RANDOM], [TIME], [TIME_TZ], [TZ], [GMT_OFFSET], [TZ-RAW], [VERSION], [PLATFORM_NAME], [PLATFORM_VERSION], [SITENAME]. You can also use [PROFILENUMBER] for the current profile's number, [PROFILENAME] for the current profile's name, [PARTCOUNT] for the number of total generated backup archive's parts, [FILELIST] for a list of backup archive parts and [REMOTESTATUS] for an indication on whether the upload to remote storage completed successfully.
