How to Receive an Email with the Results of your Cron Jobs

If you run a program which can sometimes output information in cron that information normally gets dumped to your user’s mail file.  That means you would need to sign into the server to check the mail file and see the results.  A better way is to have the results emailed out to you.  You can do this by making a simple entry as shown below:

[email protected]

Adding that one line will then cause all cron output to go to the email address of [email protected].
