"Some of the changes incorporated in this update include a check for "Catalog Backup" and "Backup Image Cleanup" jobs as well as checks to make the output more easily and quickly viewable. For instance, in the original script, no status was actually put in the Subject line. In this version, you'll get a status summary ("NO JOBS," "ALL OK" or "ERRORS") as well as the name of the server the report was generated on. Then you can just delete all the email reports you get that report that everything's fine (according to the reporter - Now, I've officially used that word enough to match my keywords. Let's just pray I don't have to use it again ;). And (since it was simple to do and not all of you may need to keep evidence that all was well at one point ;) we added a small - commented out for now - outer loop so you can remove those comments and have the script "only" mail you if there are errors to report(argh!)."
