Yes, the alerts are caused by a very brief network communication slowdown or interruption. I know this because it often happens while remote servers are backing up chewing up a good amount of the Internet connection. HOWEVER, Macrium can be less sensitive to brief interruptions. It's not transiting the backup data, so it needn't be such a stickler. Deliberately slowing down backups is not a proper way to fix this issue.
SM sends the emails.
Reminder: After a SM Agent loses connection, even briefly, to the SM Server, from that point forward, all additional messages, including the final backup success/failure email message, don't show the SM Agent's Server name any longer. Where the Agent Server name would typically appear, there's a blank space.
Finally, the server running SM is very busy during backups, which is curious. Again, getting back to Macrium design, could it be more efficient in the way it monitors backups? We're intending to add more Agent licenses. I'm wondering if it's going to overwhelm the server with it's incessant behavior.
