IMAP sensor, include email body checked on PRTG email notification



Hi, is there a way to attach (or show) the email body checked (by IMAP sensor, for example an email sent by Veeam backup) on my email notificaton? Because every time that I have a waring or an error, I must check the inbox dedicated to my PRTG system.

With this sensor, you should be able to write the result to disk and that will show you some of the information about how the email was checked, but this will not show the body of the email itself.

There is no way for the body to be sent or shown because the body is checked by running a query with the IMAP provider and only the result of whether or not something is found is returned by the IMAP server.
