As you'll see in part 3, and figured out for yourself, putting your POP email address in root's .forward file *will* send mail to that address but only *if* you are online at the time sendmail tries to send the message. Otherwise, there's not a simple solution.

But to go back to the tutorial, putting your local account name ("yves") in root's .forward file (not your POP address) will direct the cron mail to your inbox.
