    Hi,
    I don't seem to be getting my daily cron emails like I'm used to on my old hosting server. It's never worked with this new server.
    System is plesk 9.2.2 w/ qmail.
    I updated the qmail alias for root to be my personal gmail acct. I also edited /etc/crontab MAILTO=<my gmail acct>
    Is there something I need to do to tell cron to send the email to the right place?
    Is cron using "sendmail"?

    Confused...

    Joe

    Hello,

    Actually it is recommended to use /bin/mail utility in order to send mail messages via command line.

    As you can see on your server:

    -bash-3.2# ls -alrh /usr/sbin/sendmail
    lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 21 Dec 20 2008 /usr/sbin/sendmail -> /etc/alternatives/mta
