emailing log files on completion?

I've been using SuperDuper to maintain bi-daily backups of a computer that runs my house.

Basically, at the start of each month, I wipe and create a full sparseimage backup on a time capsule disk.

Then, through 3 separate scheduled events, I do smart updates of that backup every other day for the rest of the month.

My question is: Can I get the log files for each of these backups mailed to me so I know they work?

I recently filled the Time Capsule, so I "erased" the files on it, knowing that the backup that happened on August 1st would start over. Unfortunately, it didn't, since the scripts recorded the internal "disk ID" of the sparseimage and wouldn't create a new one from scratch.

I didn't catch that until today, but if I'd been getting emails of each log, I could have caught it that first night. I've checked the User Guide, but there's no mention of any way to do emailed log files.

Has anybody done this? Are you willing to share your solution?

Thanks!~

Install Growl, which we support, and will send you success/failure notification using the "MailMe" action.

Unfortunately, this is a machine running 10.6.4, which means Growl 1.1.6, which doesn't support the "MailMe" action...

There's no update for MailMe? I don't know why it wouldn't support 10.6.4...

In fact, I just tested MailMe under 10.6.4 and it works just fine. Maybe you're thinking about their Mail display part, not the MailMe display style?

You are correct. I wasn't looking under display style. That seems to work OK, with one problem. EVERY notification for EVERY application is now going to be sent to me. I run a number of home automation, mail scrubbing and other apps that all generate Growl messages. Changing the display means that I'm going to get every GROWL message mailed to me... I'm not sure I like that.

I'm going to keep looking for other solutions, and will post if I figure out one that works just for SuperDuper.

No, you set up the display style just for SuperDuper! to MailMe, steve. Each application can have its own display style.

Dave,

Thanks! That did it! I had no idea that Growl could do that! Thanks for the education (really!)
