Using Cron to have auto-getmail
Authored by: Anonymous on Sep 03, '01 03:11:27PM

I have my cron check for mail every
ten minutes:

1,11,21,31,41,51 * * * * /Users/phil/bin/getmail.py

The first asterisk field is minutes. Every 30 minutes
would be:

1,31 * * * * /Users/phil/bin/getmail.py

Using Cron to have auto-getmail
Authored by: sungwoo on Dec 01, '01 07:23:58PM

I've set the checking time as every minute, and it works.
The problem is, crontab send the log every minute to the system.log.
How can I avoid sending the log of the getmail activity only?
Thanks.
