I spent hours looking for a way to customize an Alert so that it fits on my phone's text message better and conveys the actual problem more succinctly.  To be blunt, I can't believe this is not possible.  I'm using BE 2010.

This seems like such a simple thing to do.  Either allow the editing of a text file or just allow the user to edit the properties of the alert and change the verbage.  ANYTHING!

I only have one backup server at this time so I don't need most of the information that is included with the text.  It might be nice for people with multiple backups to be able to shorten the message to suit their needs as well.

Think about it.  I can't believe this isn't a feature already, or even hasn't been for a long time now.
