    Default [SOLVED] Crontab Mailto problem

    I am running Zimbra OE 5.0x on Ubuntu 8.04. I am using a backup script from the Zimbra wiki. The script is being run using crontab as root. In the crontab, I have defined a email address with the the MAILTO: statement. I do not get any emails on that address. Attempting the mail command at the shell produces: The program 'mail' can be found in the following packages:
    * mailx
    * mailutils
    Try: apt-get install <selected package>
    bash: mail: command not found

    This is expected behavior because from the quick installation docs:Important: You cannot have any other web server, database, LDAP, or MTA server running, when you install the Zimbra software. I'm guessing that zimbra mail is not "registered" so that crontab can see it. Any suggestions?

    Welcome to the forums

    Code:
    apt-get install mailx
    and if it does pull in another MTA then just stop it.

    Default Added Exim

    I added Exim4 and set it up to send system messages to smarthost Zimbra. I'm now getting the desired result. Thanks for your help.

    May I suggest using nullmailer instead of Exim4? Exim4 is a bit of a overkill for just sending email from a server to zimbra.

    Nullmailer is easy on your resources ;-)
