Hi guys,

one more quick thing: in setting up the email account, i noticed there are tons of emails (almost 1,000) from Cron Demon ... how can I turn off these automated emails?

thanks, Justin

Hi Justin,

Do the emails contain an error message? It probably means that the cron job is generating an error, which is being reported to you via email. If the error is a legitimate error, we should fix it and then cron should stop sending emails. If, on the other hand, cron is sending useless output and we can't stop that output, then we could redirect the output to /dev/null (but then we won't be alerted if a real problem happens!).

Can you post the email that cron is sending? With that info we should be able to evaluate what to do.
