    Default cron failing to send output email

    Hi,

    I have set up several cron jobs and none of them seem to work. I have spoken to the support for my hosting and they don't know why this is happening. I have set the output email address from the cron job as my own and I don't get any emails of the cron jobs failing. Am I right in thinking that I should at least get an email stating why cron has failed? Any ideas?

    Cheers

    Hi,

    Execute crontab -l and list the entries here.
    The line MAILTO=email@domain.com exists ?

    OK. Managed to run crontab -l. No mention of mailto:
    What next?

    Cheers
