We get way too many cronjob and logrotate e-mails and should switch to a better approach. There's a test installation of greylog available, running on the Sun24 box, that needs evaluating and putting into production (or an alternative identified). That helps to better spot possible issues and reduces mail load at the same time.

The point here is not to clean up mail notification, as long as infra team members are able to handle the mail flood, filter what's relevant, and order on the fly by priority there is nothing wrong with these IMHO. This task is about improving whitebox monitoring in general. This has been a recurring topic in infra calls for a while now, and we're planning to make node monitoring part of the baseline which should solve part of this.
