I am trying to debug an issue with cron not sending mail on a Centos 6 box that I did not configure. How can I determine which mailer cron is using to send mail? The crontab man page has this to say, in part:
In addition to LOGNAME, HOME, and SHELL, cron(8) will look at MAILTO if it has any reason to send mail as a result of running commands in "this" crontab. If MAILTO is defined (and non-empty), mail is sent to the user so named. If MAILTO is defined but empty (MAILTO=""), no mail will be sent. Otherwise mail is sent to the owner of the crontab. This option is useful if you decide on /bin/mail instead of /usr/lib/sendmail as your mailer when you install cron -- /bin/mail doesn´t do aliasing, and UUCP usually doesn´t read its mail.
The part with asterisks is the part that has me wondering "Well, is it sendmail or mail?"
