Cron <root@domain> cd / && run-parts --report /etc/cron.hourly
I am getting this in an email every hour. How do I stop this and is there something wrong?
From: "Cron Daemon" <email@example.com>
using "/" as IMAP separator
using "openexchange" as db user
checking for spam and ham for username
This is what I see. First, the email address formatting isn't even right. It shouldn't be firstname.lastname@example.org. It should be email@example.com. Second, this came to my inbox, which is firstname.lastname@example.org. Why would I even be getting root emails to that inbox anyways?
Ok. This is what I did.
sudo vi /etc/crontab
I then removed the entry for the
"17 * * * * root cd / && run-parts --report /etc/cron.hourly"
I dont really know what that does, but if it is for spam, I'm going to use Postini for that and message spooling in case my internet goes down anyways.
