Email confirmation for remote backup transfers as well as the email after the local backups are made
Currently, when making remote backups in the new backup system the confirmation email is sent as soon as the local backup folder has been populated but before the backups have finished sending to any remote server.
This does not confirm that the remote server has correctly recieved the tar files. Nor does it confim whether the transmission of the backup tar files to the remote server has failed.
We are suggesting now that there is an option to have the backup confirmation email wait until the system verifies whether the whole remote transmission of the tar files is complete, or incomplete.
For example the email could confirm that all the tar files made it to the remote destination or it could let the admisitrator know if the transmission process was incomplete and therefore which tar files remain unsent on the local server.
