Crontab w/ gotmail


my crontab aint working...im trying to do this as a user....this is what I did....i typed
'crontab -e', then inside i typed
'08,23,38,53 * * * * gotmail'
I have gotmail script in my /usr/bin
if i typed 'gotmail' at the prompt then everything works fine. it's just when I have it in crontab.
does that look right?

looks good to me, except that it is always a good idea, to set the full path in scripts. i think
08,... * * * * /usr/bin/gotmail will do the trick.
If not, take a look in /var/log/syslog if possible.
