I see this in the logs. seems like it sending mail from root@proxmox
to root@proxmox

and the, sent to /usr/bin/pvemailforward
then removed ?

but i never get an email.?
Am I not reading this correctly?
I do get backup emails sent to me after a scheduled backup or if I click on backup now, after finsined it send me an email. so I am not sure what these are below ?

Thanks for any help you can give me.

PS I have this setup https://forum.proxmox.com/threads/get-postfix-to-send-notifications-email-externally.59940/

to use Gmail to forward emails to me. and I do get the backups bit neverrecieve any other emails - notifications so when looking at the logs I saw so many emails not sent just to root@proxmox and then seems they remove them?

so how can I see what those emails are and how to get them to send the way I have the emails forwarded in the link above.

I do have in root@pam a email address setup


EDIT: it might of been that i added root@pam email after these times...

Ok so I guess the question is really, how can I test any notifications from proxmox to root@proxmox

in other words how can I fire off a notification that proxmox would send ?

- is there a way to trigger some notifications and see if I do get those in my email?

did you found ?
Hello, No I did not find but notifications for backups are working. I have not experienced any issues as of yet so I think its working.
It would be nice to know what / where notifications are available in what file or cron is located
