When email notifications are defined for Warning (and I assume Failure) completions of backups, more information is needed in the emails.  For instance, a Warning email may contain the message 'WARNING - Some Files Not Copied - Check the log for details", but that log may not be accessible to the recipient of the email.  It might be thousands of miles/kilometers away.  Having all pertinent data from the log included in the email would be very useful.

You could easily include the main log and VSS log in any of the send mail screens

And the main log in the email contains the less-than-useful line "'WARNING - Some Files Not Copied - Check the log for details".
There are auxiliary log files that are not included.
