I am trying to set up a "test" cron job which will simply email me at a scheduled time. Here are the steps that I followed:
1) created a cron job using crontab -e and included the following command:
00,10,20 9-15 * * * echo "testing" /usr/sbin/sendmail firstname.lastname@example.org
2) I saved this file and named it "testy"
3) I exited out of my editor and typed "crontab testy" at the command line
4) I checked, using crontab -l, to make sure the job was listed, and it was
However I never got the email at the scheduled time. Any ideas on what I'm doing wrong?
