crontab problems

*/5 * * * * wget > /dev/null 2>&1

why the hell do I still receive cron e-mails to the admin with the output?
I thought > /dev/null 2>&1 would do the job ??

One thought on “crontab problems

  1. syntax looks fine, try to tail the logging of messages and /cvar/log/cron/error info or warning, could give a hint?

    you also might try turning it around, 2>&1 >/dev/null but your syntax ought to work as well…
