I am using NBU 5230 appliance. Version is 184.108.40.206.
An output for the backup notification. The sender is root <email@example.com> which I don't know how to change it.
From: root <firstname.lastname@example.org>

Subject: Backup on NBU5230 - 0
Backup on client NBU5230 for user root by server NBU5230 succeeded.
Specify a progress file next time for more information.
This is a yast issue that has been seen before - worth logging a call with symantec to get the change made correctly - see the solution on this thread:
But it is... from the marked solution:
The appliance configured as just a media server was resolving its own local hostname impoperly. When you issued commands to show hostname all was correct, but during the beginning stages of the upgrade the logs showed it registered as "linux" which is a yast default.
We manually updated the host file and issued a command ( cp -avf /usr/share/YaST2/control/control.xml /control.xml yast2 clone_system) to verify the change took and then attempted the upgrade.
The yast default sometimes is not set correctly and although your have named your appliance it sends mail from the yasy name of linux and using root
This overrides the setting set in the CLISH /GUI
If you get the yast name corrected you e-mail settings should start to work correctly
That is what i suggested - it should be that simple command line but as you are digging into Yast it is better to get support to run the command for you and confimr that is the issue in the first place - pretty sure it is though
Do keep us updated
You have posted in Appliance forum, asking about 5230 Appliance, right?
The above applies to NBU notifications as well on the Appliance.
This is what Catalog backup email looks like on our in-house demo unit:

Thank you. I have setup the above. On 2.6 it should be under settings -> alerts -> email
However, the notifications for backup is still email@example.com.
I guess there is some problem with my appliance. Now pending TSE to help. Thanks for your comment.
