Bug Description

The point of setting up backups is to do it once, then forget about it. If something goes wrong, the backup should inform the user of errors so actions are taken to fix the problem.

Right now, when I set up the report e-mail address, I receive a mail each time a backup is performed. Since the backup will work 99.9% of the time, daily, it means that receiving a mail report is useless because I will either make a mail rule to delete it automatically, or just disable it.

This is the complete report that gets sent to me:
SBackup 'Default Profile' Logger

Very helpful! I am using 0.11.4 on ubuntu 10.10 server.

There should be an option like "(checkbox) Only send report when warning or errors occure" or just make the report follow the log verbosity.

Thank you for choosing sbackup and reporting this issue. I agree with your comments and'll mark this as feature request.

Patches welcome :-)

Regarding to your specific email report: What log level setting do you use? Error? If so, this is intended - only errors are being reported.

Thanks again.
