Dropbox backup fails due to Email issue?!?

Ok, So I am having problems already with getting an email domain to work in the system because it uses odd IMAP ports. So I have no email working yet.

Now I wanted to set Dropbox up to receive my backups and I get the following error:

It complains that the email notification cant work because the email is not setup. Then it dumps the whole process and… NO BACKUP!!

Is there a way to do Dropbox backups without having to use the email notification?

At least that way I could get the backup working until I figure out a way around the email issue.


Still hoping someone has an idea on how I might get the Dropbox backup to run without the need of a notification email.

Any ideas?
