No mail from cron

Thanks (Dan & all)
I tried redirecting (stdout and stderr) to a file (as in 'command > /tmp/file 2>&1')
The file isn't empty after job completion, therefore it should have been emailed without redirection. But still no mail. The latest patch is already installed.
Help
Thanks guys for your help.

Best Regards

Fouad

Re: No mail from cron

Hi Fouad,

Do you have any message in /var/adm/cron/log ?
Is sendmail working on your system ?
Check if you have messages left in /var/spool/mqueue or any sendmail related message in /var/adm/syslog/syslog.log

Best regards,

Dan
