    i'm creating a 'black box' application server for a client. the objective is to
    process incoming emails through sanitizer, pull out attachements and body text
    and store these in a specific directory.

    after a few false starts, then reading some of the code, this is working

    there's one small problem......

    the system requires running several jobs via crontab (we're talking about a

    through sanitizer and winds up in the directory with the other stuff the
    customer NEEDS to see.

    putting MAIL="" in crontab really isn't an option, nor is mailing this output to
    an external address.

    any help would be appreciated.
