For some reason my crontab jobs arent running, I have no mail when i type mail, and cron is e-mails you when it finishes a job?


I have edited the crontab file in /etc/crontab


# /etc/crontab: system-wide crontab
# Unlike any other crontab you don't have to run the `crontab'
# command to install the new version when you edit this file.
# This file also has a username field, that none of the other crontabs do.

SHELL=/bin/sh
PATH=/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/sbin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin

# m h dom mon dow user command
17 * * * * root run-parts --report /etc/cron.hourly
25 6 * * * root test -x /usr/sbin/anacron || run-parts --report /etc/cron.daily
47 6 * * 7 root test -x /usr/sbin/anacron || run-parts --report /etc/cron.weekly
52 6 1 * * root test -x /usr/sbin/anacron || run-parts --report /etc/cron.monthly
10 9 * * * root echo Blah
0 18 * * 1-5 root /usr/local/bin/backup
#


And


root@ntinstall:/var# crontab -l
45 * * * * echo Mark





Here is what is running
