There could be many things, Ralph, but why guess when the answer is
probably sitting right on your machine in qmail's log file?

Another useful diagnostic would be to run /var/log/qmail-qread (you
have to be root). Something like

/var/log/qmail-qread | egrep -v done | less

would take out the successful deliveries and just show you the
problems. If you don't see mail from cron to root in the qread output,
then that could suggest that the mail is being successfully sent, but
is perhaps being filtered out by your remote site.

If you're not sure how to interpret the log files, then post the
relevant bits.

Good luck,
