Enable MAILTO from crontab


I was wondering what I need to to do enable crontab send mails to what is defined in its MAILTO variable? I already installed ssmtp package but without success..


How does your current crontab look like?

It looks like this

0 4 * * * sh /root/somescript.sh

Try to get variable in somescript.sh:
echo $MAILTO >> /tmp/somescript.out

echo $MAILTO

Returns nothing.. seems like the MAILTO-variable is not set.

I am running OpenWrt 18.06.2, r7676-cddd7b4c77 on a TP-Link TL-WR1043N/ND v4.

Add to script
echo '123' >> /tmp/somescript.out
Maybe script itself is not started.
