    Default 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" <root@mail.domain.net>
    To: root@mail.domain.net

    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 root@mail.domain.net. It should be root@domain.net. Second, this came to my inbox, which is username@domain.net. 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.
