In the Netbackup admin guide, go through the part about setting up nbmail.cmd with BLAT.
Once you have the nbmail.cmd script fully configured and enabled (i.e., copy it from goodies\ to bin\), all the e-mail related features in the Netbackup GUI (and nbu scripts) will be effective.
Edit: You might also be interested in the mail_dr_info.cmd script, which is similar to nbmail.cmd, but more related to what you are looking for.

But then again, nowadays I tend to just recommend people to use OpsCenter for Netbackup related e-mail alerts/notifications, and do away with all that script editing stuff. (... in most cases.)
