i have just set up a new blog and have set everything up for an automatic backup with email. i have tested it doing a manual backup, and the backup is there but it never gets emailed.
the backup is only 389K (i only have a couple of posts and images as i just set it up). if i go to 'manage database backup', i can select the file and click 'email' and i receive the email. i have entered the same email address that is in my wordpress settings and white listed in my spam filter. any ideas? also, is emailing my database really that important?
