I have a number of scripts that run every night using a crontab. In my crontab file I'm using the MAILTO flag to get cron to email me every time it runs which results in a lot of emails.
Is there any way of instructing cron to only email me if the cron job fails?
Redirect stderror to /dev/null:
/bin/sh /home/me/myscript > /dev/null
And this one won't mail you, whether it errors or not....
/bin/sh /home/me/myscript > /dev/null 2>&1

Very cool! Now, what if you do the same, but instead of the normal crons, can something like this be done with the /etc/periodic/daily, weekly, and monthly routines?
and see the relevant paragraphs under "Examples"...
