Email only being sent on system reboot


Hi:

I'm working on a FC 19 linux box.
I'm not very familiar with how to setup and administer email.
I have set up logwatch to email me summaries of activity and security alerts once a day, but I never see the emails until I reboot the OS. If it's been several days since I rebooted, I get all the emails sent to root during those several days.

I know I'm doing something wrong, but I don't know what to do. Can anyone help, or give me more diagnostic steps to post here?

Paul

Is it only the logwatch emails that are delayed or all emails?

Maybe take a look at /var/log/maillog and see if there's anything showing "deferred" or "denied"
