but the mail was returned.

In /etc/crontab:

# m h dom mon dow user  command
42 6    * * *   root    run-parts /etc/cron.daily
47 6    * * 7   root    run-parts /etc/cron.weekly
52 6    1 * *   root    run-parts /etc/cron.monthly

But the source does not have 'run-parts'.

1. What's this: Cron <root@hindustan> run-parts /etc/cron.daily


I am baffled. The root user keeps getting the following mail message:

From looking at that directory (/etc/cron.daily) I know that this cron job
being executed for the news server (inn). But I'm not able to figure out
which user is executing this cron job. I've logged (su) in as root user,
and other "system" users......after which I did "crontab -l", but I have
unable to track the source of this cronfile/user.  Any help would be
I do intend to configure the news server eventually, but as of right now...I
have not messed w/ the inn.....
