I'm running some cron jobs on my machine and every time I fire up a terminal session I'm getting a 'You have mail.' message. Any way to turn this off?
Mac OS X runs "login" each time a login occurs. So, no matter what the setting is for Bash, the "login" will tell you about mail whenever you login.
However, if you have a
~/.hushlogin file, the login process will be quieter and (hopefully) not bother you.
