In the past, it was possible to detect errors by checking for the word "error" in the body of a cPanel backup email.

Recently, the text of these emails was changed, and now includes the line:
> Queuing the end-of-queue report of any errors (if any)

This occurs irrespective of whether there actually are any errors, and removes the ability to filter the emails.

Why was this change implemented and how do I revert it to allow detecting emails with errors?

Hello :)

You can still review the backup logs for any errors by viewing the log file from the command line. It's stored in the following directory:

/usr/local/cpanel/logs/cpbackup/

Feel free to open a feature request if you would like to see a new feature that emails you the full backup logs or error reports from backups on a daily basis:

Thank you.
