       script-email - Amanda script to send email notifications

       script-email is an Amanda script implementing the Script API. It should
       not be run by users directly. It sends a notification email to the
       addresses specified in the MAILTO property.

       This section lists the properties that control script-email's
       functionality. See amanda-scripts(7) for information on the Script API,
       script configuration.


	   List of email addresses that will receive an email on command
	   execution. It is a multi-valued property:
	     property "MAILTO" "" "" ""

       In this example, script-email is scheduled to be run before the DLE, on
       the server.  The unqualified email address amanda will be passed to the
       email system unchanged.	The script is then attached to a dumptype,
       which can then be specified for any DLEs which require notification.
	define script-tool pre-email {
	  comment "email me before this DLE is backed up"
	  plugin  "script-email"
	  execute-on pre-dle-backup
	  execute-where server
	  property "mailto" "amanda"

	define dumptype user-tar-email {
	  script "pre-email"
