How to access the mail the cron process is trying to send

  • I've been running Kiwi to keep tabs of my syslogs. I've noticed a lot of entries like this 'cron[XXXX]: (root) MAIL (mailed XX bytes of output but got status 0x0001)' Is there anyway I can see what the message it's trying to send?

    Not really. It's just any output from a cron job. Doesn't mean it's an error, just that a job produced some output at all.

    In order to see that you'd actually have to setup an MTA like postfix on the router and configure a proper mail alias for root.

  • thanks Jim! Yeah, I wont be setting that up on the router
