Record history of bytes backed up

thank you very much for your support ticket. I'm very much afraid it's not possible though to extract a number (Numerical result), from a backup-mail, with the IMAP-Sensor. You could only try combining the IMAP Sensor maybe with a traffic sensor (Flow/Sniffer) and filters if the backup traffic is written to a certain dedicated destination IP/Port.

best regards.
