Try adding ">/dev/null 2>&1" at the end of the line.
For further info google for cron disable email notifications.

#2 Updated by mcfedr mcfedr over 11 years ago

Preferably the regular messages would not be printed on stdout, and so silent, but error messages would be on stderr which i assume is still printed, >/dev/null 2>&1 will stop me getting notifications of errors

  • Subject changed from Receiving pop3 email to Receiving pop3 email should not output debug messages
  • Status changed from New to Closed
  • Target version set to 1.2.0

This should be fixed by r4737. Debug messages are now logged instead of sent to the standard output.
