Hi,

Last week I configured two servers to send log email after some cronjob run.

This week, I don't receive mail anymore from both servers. I take a look in my /var/log/mail.log .. nothing. I run this command manualy :
mail -s "Backup" email@domain.com < /home/backup/scripts/cronjob.txt

I did not receive any mail and I didn't receive any error in my shell.

I already take a look in my spam box... nothing

There has to be something in your logfiles :)
Examine carefully your syslog.conf - maybe your logs are redirected somewhere else?
Check if your have enough free space on your harddrive.
Try sending test email (mail -s subject some_local_user < /dev/null).
If you have free space, and you have properly configured syslog.conf, you have to see something in logfiles.

AWHH I just found..

This is a new box with the newest version of arch... since it's a live/critical server it doesn't reboot often. On the new version of arch, we need postfix to send mail .. and postfix wasn't on the start up daemon in my rc.conf...

Sorry for that, shame on me.

Thanks for your support anyway.
