here is the output i do get:

From: root at domain.net (Cron Daemon)
To: root at domain.net
Subject: Cron <root at shell> /usr/sbin/logwatch --detail low --range today
X-Cron-Env: <SHELL=/bin/ksh>
X-Cron-Env: <HOME=/root>
X-Cron-Env: <PATH=/usr/bin:/bin>
X-Cron-Env: <LOGNAME=root>
X-Cron-Env: <USER=root>

Can't exec "sendmail": No such file or directory at /usr/sbin/logwatch line 941,+<TESTFILE> line 2.
Can't execute sendmail -t: No such file or directory


that is it.

this occured right after a yum update.
logwatch.conf did not change as i have it in RCS and
mailer = "sendmail -t"

here is the crontab line, it has not changed either.
