Would it be possible to add a 'send test email' button to the email configuration screen.
That way it is easier to make sure valid email credentials and details are set.
This will help me sleep well, knowing that I will get emails on failed backups.

Thanks for all your hard work on all this.
With kind regards from the Netherlands,
