Sendmail is configured to deliver the mail to our central mailserver,
the problem is it's producing emails that we don't want and even tho
it's set to send them to another user, they're all coming to root.
The emails shouldn't even be generated in the first place, as the
jobs are completing fine. There should be no emails, but I can't
find a way to stop them.
