Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Our OS X Leopard (10.5) server is sending out an email EVERY DAY for a Disk Full Notification on an external HDD we use for Time Machine backups (which manages it's own disk space, so the disk full notifications are useless).

In the Server Admin app, under Settings > Notifications, there's this:Email Notifications

which is clearly disabled.

The email header and message: http://pastebin.com/V5PZ3Phk

I've been told to check the mail.log, but it's mostly empty (except for a few logs in 2011 saying "Postfix mail system is not running".

I've also been told to check the crontabs, but I'm not sure how to do that on OS X (or any OS for that matter). Can someone explain how to do this?

Also, if there's any other suggestions on places/things/etc to look at/for, my ears are all open!

Why so out of date? –  Chopper3 Oct 19 '12 at 17:02
    
I'm not the money-decision person, so it's pretty much out of my hands. –  David Oct 19 '12 at 17:03
    
10.5 was replaced over three years ago - and you could upgrade the whole machine for ~$100 - nobody here is likely to respond to this question as it's so out of date and also should've been asked on the apple-specific SE site. –  Chopper3 Oct 19 '12 at 17:32
    
I tried over there and got no answers/comments at all. –  David Oct 19 '12 at 17:48
    
For the same reason no doubt –  Chopper3 Oct 19 '12 at 18:15
