View Full Version : Send e-mail with a Shell Script

11-09-2008, 06:05 AM

I would like to send an e-mail when a backup is made.

I think that is possible using a shell script that Superduper launches when the backup is complete, but I dont know how to make shell scripts.

Does anyone knows how to do this?

Thanks :)

Install Growl (http://www.growl.info), which we support, and you can use its "MailMe" notification type to mail for both successful and failed copies.

Hi, thanks for the reply.

I already have Growl installed, i try to config it with your instructions, but had no lunk, how do I use mailme? It doesn't appear on Growl.

Superduper appears on Growl, but how can i config it to send a mail message?

Thanks again

It's one of the notification types in Growl's preference pane: you pick SD!, the notification you want, and then change the "Display Style".

It all goes well until it tries to use the script

Why are you running that script? It sounds like something you wrote, not part of Growl. Turn that option off.

But that only appear when I did Mailme on Growl.

I don't know why that would be: please ensure that you are not trying to run that yourself, in the Advanced tab of Options.
