Description Orion Poplawski 2008-03-04 18:14:46 UTC
Description of problem:

The use of "MAILTO" is somewhat unfortunate - it is set by default by
/etc/crontaon.  Perhaps you want to change the default in the
/etc/sysconfig/yum-cron file to:

MAILTO=

to unset it for the yum-cron script.


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
yum-cron-0.8-1.fc8

Comment 1 Habig, Alec 2008-03-05 15:39:31 UTC
I see what you mean.  To match the documented behavior it needs to be unset in
the sysconf file.  Will push a patch soon.
