Many thanks to those who replied to my earlier post on this
subject. In summary:
1. cron mails the results of its jobs to the crontab owner.
2. to prevent the cron job from mailing its results, simply
output the job to /dev/null. In my case, it was a matter
of changing the job from:
20,50 * 1-31 * 0-6 /usr/lib/news/nntpsend.csh
20,50 * 1-31 * 0-6 /usr/lib/news/nntpsend.csh >/dev/null 2>&1
as was pointed out by a number of people.
Thanks again for the quick *and* accurate responses. The net comes
