Example scripts which do each of the 3 items you indicate, should be plentiful around the internet, and surely there are some examples right here on LQ, just a SEARCH away.. If you find some and edit them to suit your exact situation, or write your own, and it does not work as expected, please show us the scripts and paste verbatim any errors produced and/or describe the problem in detail, and we will try to help you fix the problems. Probably not many people are willing to write you your scripts, or do your searching for you.

Cheers!

At its simplest, a script is just a sequence of shell commands entered in a file. Give the file execute permissions and take off.

So, get the syntax for your tar commands, your copy commands, an email command, and put them in file. Test each by hand first. That makes your script.

If you put the script in cron, and it generates errors, you automatically get those by email. So, you might not even need the email part.

Ask questions on details if necessary.

All part of learning Linux.

You may need to create symlinks to help out mailx(1).

Read section 2.8.3 of the Life with qmail guide.

anomie, thanks for reply.

I was read life with qmail 1 weeks ago, but I can't find anything..

By the way, I solved the problem by installing Acronis.
