You can receive email alerts from both the device GUI and the Partner Portal. The device GUI alerts pertain to the individual systems you are backing up, such as backup and screenshot alerts. The Partner Portal alerts are related to hardware or account issues.

How to stop device GUI alerts

1. Log into the Datto device UI.
2. Select the Protect tab to see all the systems on the appliance.

  • Weekly Backup Reports 
  • Backup Warnings
  • Critical Errors
  • Log Digests 

Next to each email address listed, uncheck the boxes for the emails you no longer wish to receive.
