I am trying to post crontab error messages via cURL to Discord/Slack rather than email. Is there any way to do that? I have been searching about this, but I haven't found anything like it on google. Server in matter is Ubuntu

    Debian/Ubuntu use vixie-cron, which is pretty limited and can't do anything like this. Other Linux distros use cronie, which can run a command instead of sending mail. If you can't get rid of Ubuntu/Debian, consider sending email to a mailbox that forwards the message to those systems. – Michael Hampton Mar 2 at 20:00
