I currently use the built-in crond deamon and rsync to make automated nightly backups of the MBWE's contents. I'd like to get confirmation of the nightly job by email, which normally functions if one includes the
snippet in the crontabs file but that doesn't work. Has anyone succeeded doing this? The Email notification service on the MBWE is running, so i am getting mails from the box whenever something out of the ordinary happens.
