Is there a way to setup Arcserve to send an
alert/information regarding the backup status/problems via email?
This is NW 6.5 Arc11.1
From what I read, you have to setup a windows PC
with the Arcserve manager and Alert service running
and configure it to send alerts to SMTP server.

Is this the only way of doing it? Involving a dedicated PC to send out a
backup info message?
