I'm running OpenSUSE 10.3 on a server with SAMBA providing file and printer services to PCs in my house (XP & Linux). I have a CRON entry starting a PERL program I wrote to backup the shared SAMBA files and other data to DVD on a weekly basis.

Currently the messages from this PERL program go to me via UNIX mail on that server. What do I need to do to get those messages sent to an Email account outside my home network? I'm not looking to put a full-function email server on this file server - I just want to get the CRON process messages sent to an Email account.


Never mind! I had a brain fart. It's working now!
