That's what it's there for. Huh? I want to use cron to run the script, but want more control over when and where email gets sent. The business reasons are sound. Anyway, a script that sends email is not complicated, so how can I be overcomplicating anything?
Also, recent posts to freebsd-questions on the subject of sending email from cron seemed to favor having the script handle the mailing instead of cron. Anyway, I do not want the client to receive an email if the backup fails. Bill, I'm just trying to figure stuff out here. I'm sorry if my ignorance offends you. I don't know how others feel about it, but I'd prefer not to get negative, condescending replies to my sincerely aimed questions. After all, this is a forum for questions, isn't it? ____________________________________________________________________________________ Sick sense of humor? Visit Yahoo!
