[SOLVED] Change Email Template for Notifications


New Member
Mar 8, 2022
Maybe I'm not using the appropriate search terms, but I can't seem to find where I can change the email template for notifications from Proxmox.

I've configured postfix and SMTP is functioning perfectly, but I am not a fan of the way emails look; email name: vzdump backup tool (not ideal), subject:
vzdump backup status (proxmox.mydomain.com) : backup successful (not terrible, but want to edit), etc.

I've looked in /etc/postfix and can't seem to find where I can modify this to my desired template.

If anything, please help me by pointing me in the right direction.

Thanks in advance.
