Duplicati can send email notifications after each operation. These can be either entered under the settings to apply to all Duplicati profiles, or under an individual profile under Option 5 | Advanced Options section.


Use the send-mail command to test this:

%MONO%"%APP_PATH%" send-mail --send-mail-to=<email-address>

Commandline options
