vixie-cron e-mails me the output of cron jobs, with one message per job.
I would rather receive messages in batches, with either a configurable number of messages per batch or (better) each batch covering a defined time period. I already use logwatch to get daily e-mails; a solution that could be integrated into this system would be ideal.
I can't find a way of configuring
4.1-81) to output to a directory or a log file instead of directly to the SMTP client. I am aware that I can manually redirect the output to a different location in
crontab itself, but it seems like there should be a way to change the default.
I also wonder what the best tool for sending the e-mails would be (if not logwatch).
