email csv file message

using the email results option, and selecting a csv file as the emailed output from a query leads to the following message:


The search history page shows the query as running, and results are then emailed to me OK, so the message appears to be unnecessary. (Not sure what it means anyway).

Hi Andy,

It's an accidental exposure of a return code from the server which was not meant to be shown, the user-interface for this is unfinished, but I'd not realised this message was being routinely shown to DDb users. I'll get this tidied up - the page should display a message stating that the results are being emailed.

It doesn't reflect an error and, as you noted, the emailed results should get sent.
