I'm using bash, and I simply want to use the "at" command to schedule a very simple job for a particular time.
The problem I'm coming across is that bash automatically sends the standard output (and error output) to the user via sendmail. Unfortunately, I don't have sendmail setup on my machine (and several people have told me not to use sendmail, since it sucks). Consequently, I do not receive any notification of what the my simple job has done.
Does anybody have any good workaround ideas for this?
[Why couldn't bash do what several of the other major shells do and allow the user to specify the mode of notification (e.g., NOT via sendmail).]
[Edit: I just tried changing my shell to tcsh, and the effect seems to be the same. So, this instead appears to be a Linux issue rather than a bash issue.]
I'm probably overlooking something obvious, but this is my present take on things....
