How to view the content of Outlook Mail messages in the CubeBackup web console.
Mail content is hidden by default
Due to privacy concerns, the content of the backed up Outlook Mail messages is designed to be hidden by default in CubeBackup web dashboard. That is, the message content cannot be viewed directly in the Mail RESTORE page.
With this setting, it is inconvenient when restoring a message because you might not know whether this is the right one to be restored due to the hidden content.
CubeBackup allows you to turn on the visibility of the message content with a configuration setting.
Show the content of Outlook Mail messages
Open the config file <installation directory>\etc\config.toml on the backup server using a text editor.
On Windows, the default installation directory is located at C:\Program Files\CubeBackup365.
On Linux, the default installation directory is located at /opt/cubebackup365.
Find the [Web] section and change the value of
HideEmailBodyto false. If your config.toml file doesn't contain the
HideEmailBodyentry, you will need to create one.
HideEmailBody = false
The [Web] section should look like this after the modification:
[Web] Bind = ":80" HideEmailBody = false ...
Restart the CubeBackup service.
sudo /opt/cubebackup365/bin/cbsrv restart
On Windows: Open the Command Prompt or Windows PowerShell and run this command as Administrator
"C:\Program Files\CubeBackup365\bin\cbsrv.exe" restart
