    [feature request] Notification Only on Multiple Failures

    Extra drop down option in the backup notification menu. Currently there's: Always Notify or On failure only. I'd love an On Multiple Failure only. So you are only notified in the case where under Advanced when "Repeat missed" is checked, and the repeat fails THEN you get a notification. I've...

    Gotify notifications - LXC instead of Docker?

    I saw a video explaining how to enable PMVE Gotify notifications, but it involved setting up a VM with Docker. Don't want all that overhead and complexity. Anyone have plans to deploy Gotify in a PM LXC container directly? Could this be a supported template / turnkey for PMVE? TIA

    Proxmox VE Notifications ignoring /etc/hosts (kinda)

    Due to some intricacies of reverse-proxy stuff (which I'm really not going to go into for security reasons), I have added an entry to the /etc/hosts file for every node in a particular Proxmox VE cluster. This is so that the FQDN of the SMTP server I am sending notifications through resolves to...

    The box (PVE1) was installed on top of Debian and recently upgraded to 8.1. Tried (unsuccessfully) setting up postfix after upgrading before learning about the new SMTP notifications system, which was set up successfully and backup jobs send emails as expected. However, cron jobs are not sending...

    Do I configure Email Notifications on PBS the same way I do on PVE?

    I realize that my node-cluster will now email me when backups are done, but I'd also like to PBS to be able to send me emails as well, such as if the ZFS pool on PBS is struggling or something. So can I go about installing sasl and mailutils on PBS? Or is there another route? Or is this not...

    Stopped receiving emails from successful backups or any communication altogether such as cron jobs.

    I'm wondering if any body else is having issues. I have stopped receiving notifications from PVE. Either through Outlook or Gmail accounts. Could this have to do with their emails becoming more secure? Or perhaps this is an internal issue? I would appreciate help. I think the latest email I...

    Email Notifications

    Is there a list of email notifications Proxmox sends out? Are they sent periodically or only sent when something is wrong? I've confirmed I can send email from the commandline and received it on the destination address.

    Support for Gotify

    Hellu It would be great to have support for Gotify, so we can have push notifications for updates and/or backups instead of only emails. You only have to execute a `curl` command to push a message.
