currently having a problem where cron output is not being sent to my email box. I need this to work because I need to debug some new cron jobs. I am not sure why it stopped working, maybe during a cpanel update or some other automatic process.

Here is a clip of my crontab -e

MAILTO="cron@mydomain.com" //uses my real email in the crontab

Any ideas for why cron output would be suppressed?

I rebuilt exim and everything works now. It seems exim was corrupted somehow.
