Odd messages in mailog

Every 5 minutes I’m seeing a message from root to asterisk in my mail logs. Any idea what might be causing this?

Obvious question: who is that? If it’s your system name, check the Asterisk email account. If it isn’t your system, then I’d start ‘grep’-ing the crap out of your system.

SholinkPBX.sho-link.com is the origin name in the email setup page

Time to change that.

I’m not sure where it came from, but it needs to be set to something you control.

The messages are probably a failing crontab job that runs every five minutes. Log into the server as ‘root’ and try:

crontab -eu asterisk

Look for the jobs that run every five minutes and try them by hand. The one that fails is the one filling your maillog.

should get your some more information.

Impressive! I had disabled qxact reports and there was a cron job associated with it. Thanks!
