I'm using a very plain Ubuntu Server 9.04, and cron isn't delivering any mail to my /var/mail/USER (the file hasn't even been created). Here's my full crontab:
# m h dom mon dow command 15 * * * * $HOME/.cron/sync-bookmarks.bash
If I add
# m h dom mon dow command 15 * * * * $HOME/.cron/sync-bookmarks.bash >& /tmp/log
then I see the stdout and stderr in /tmp/log. I'm not (yet) interested in actual remote email delivery, just local delivery to the mail spool file. Why isn't mail working? Thanks in advance for any tips.
