    We've been getting these sent out hourly for a while now. We ended up just commenting our cron.hourly for a bit. Our /bandwidth stopped updating Nov. 10th, which most likely coincides with when cron decided to begin sending us this garbage e-mail.

    I believe we're getting cron.daily, but I've been vigilant in deleting cron crap lately, so I don't have any in my inbox at the moment to confirm this.

    Cron is working. I have a cron job running every 5 minutes for my site. It's still running. Last night /scripts/upcp ran and e-mailed us. (Two hours after I did it by hand, figuring it might fix the problem. Doh!)

    What on Earth is going on? Can anyone help me?
