If you have confirmed that sendmail (mailx) is working at OS level on Oracle clients, you can use 'Client sends mail' in Client's Universal Settings.

That is a really ancient script, mentions NetBackup versions 3.4 and 4.5.  That is older than I am!  wink

First off I would recommend starting with the sample script for current version, 7.5 in your case.  There should be comments in the new script about sending email notifications.

This is a common script, we will copy this script to all the DB servers. we will not make any changes on the script. We will create the DB policy name as SID name.Backup is running as per the schedule.

Only problem is with mail sad

OK, see Oracle forums for email notification setup.  Some examples:
