You're correct. That's my mistake and I apologize for the misinformation. Simply put, periodic does not generate any output to either stdout or stderr. It has its own system for determining who to mail to. See /etc/defaults/periodic.conf or appropriate man pages for the details. -- Bill Moran Collaborative Fusion Inc. _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
