Matthew,

Concerning the email notifications: BIG DUH to me! That's exactly what's
happening. Thanks for copying that portion of the user's guide here.

About the backup on-demand server script: That would mean all the on-demand
backups would go to the same set. That set could get HUGE. Any strategies
you can recommend?

Cordially,

  Scott Ponzani
