I have a question on what the handbook says about portsnap. According
to the handbook:
"Adding the following line to /etc/crontab will cause portsnap to update
its compressed snapshot and the INDEX files in /usr/ports/, and will
send an email if any installed ports are out of date:
0 3 * * * root portsnap -I cron update && pkg_version -vIL="
My question is what part of that crontab entry sends an email? Is it a
function of cron, because I didnt see any reference to an email getting
sent in the portsnap or pkg_version man page.
