You could try something like this:

000-00000000 SEQ 0" -e "Amanda 2.5 NAK HANDLE 000-00000000 SEQ 0"

This might not be the most elegant way, but it works.
I have no idea what the context is here -- this is another random
email from the backupcentral forums gateway.  But it brings up the

contrib/ directory.  Anyone want to toss something my way?
Pardon me if this is a naive question, but -- What, exactly, would
something like nagios have to offer? Amanda doesn't run as a daemon. So
there's no need to check and see that it is still running. Typically,
amcheck is run off cron to catch things during the day when sysadmins
are around to do something about them. In either case, you get an email
that gives you the status of a completed run or if something needs
