whoopps - in my haste I mistyped... you probably want >> for append versus > overwrite.

I typically use redirection in the cron statement to achieve this result.


# (Cron version -- $Id: crontab.c,v 2.13 1994/01/17 03:20:37 vixie Exp $)
# At 5PM every day, mail reminders to admins as to pending requests
0 17 * * * /usr/bin/python -S /home/mailman/cron/checkdbs > /var/log/checkdbs.og 2> &1

or something like that. (vis. > /var/log/checkdbs.og 2> &1)

Hope this helps.

This is a unix question, I guess, instead of a mailman question.  I'd like
to keep the cron messages specific to mailman in a separate log file from
my other cron logs.  

I can't think of a way to do that, but I thought I'd ask.

This is on linux.
