All seems to work as described. I did not get an email, therefore my server was not sending emails! It helped me fix my problem.

I thought I had been successfully making backups for years. the logs always finished with "apparently succeeded" which I thought meant successful. It was NEVER successful. Now after several years I needed to do my first restore and "download failed" I went to the dropbox apps folder under "UpdraftPlus.Com" and there is NOTHING THERE!

This nifty little plugin does exactly what it says it does, sending out an email from within the WordPress environment so that you can check if all things work well, and emails are actually reaching their destination. It's easy to use, works as promised, so therefore 5 Stars!
