Which patch level are you at on the appliance? (2.?.?)

What mail setting have you set on the Master Servers Host Properties? (Global Attributes and Universal Settings)

If you have the mail addresses specified only under Universal Settings and select that Server sends the message then you will only get mails for failed backups. If you choose client sends mail then you will get messages for all backups.

Alternatively ONLY use the Global Attributes section which will only send messages for failed backups.

Hope this helps
