it all works great for nonpriv users. why does it not work for root?
does anyone else use batch to run root commands?
I'm using stock RedHat 7.3, and I've tried this with courier 0.42.0, 0.42.2,
and 0.42.2.20030630 and cron jobs run as root email the output fine. In fact
I've got a bunch of crontab lines which make dial-up connections at certain
times to send and receive mail and my root account (well the account that
root is aliased to, of course) gets a nice little email each time with the
all the pppd stats (as you would expect). So it's definitely something
particular to your setup.
Sorry I can't give you any more help. Have you tried messing with the
"MAILTO=" line in the crontab and see what happens?
