    I have a problem with cron jobs not sending an email notification and trying to fix/diagnose the problem.

    Can you tell me if this file should exist on my server


    After doing a test i get

    /var$ echo test | mail test@test.co.uk

    /usr/sbin/sendmail: No such file or directory

    I may be wrong, but this file does not exist, and i presume is needed for the mailing function to work correctly.

    If it is the case can you send me one from a default installation?

    Thanks in advance

    Run this command at the prompt:
    ln -s /usr/local/psa/qmail/bin/sendmail /usr/sbin/sendmail
    This will create a copy of sendmail in the /usr/sbin directory.

    Thanks for the help you pointed me in the right direction. The path you specified to sendmail did not exist. But after doing a find sendmail i located a copy in /var/qmail/bin/.

    My Cron Jobs are now sending email notifications.

    Thanks again..
