I wonder why you posted this here.  This is not Owl-specific and in
fact is a very basic thing everyone should already know. ;-)

Just use shell output redirection (such as, "&> /dev/null" after the
shell command) or set MAILTO as described in crontab(5).

Speaking of that UBE ("spam") posting and the related bounce message
that reached the list, I've taken my usual measures and I am making
the list pre-moderated for non-subscriber posts (which of course will
also delay posts by subscribers from unusual addresses, but I'll be
adding those to a whitelist).
