PS. The isp is now saying something seems to be wrong with their cron
system. But in tinkering with the time settings some, I am now
managing to get cron message back every five minutes. That's
promising. Here's a sample if anyone spots a problem.

Still no luck getting my emails sent of course... But at least the
time seems to be working... My isp is supposed to call me back once
they figure it out. We'll see if they do. (BlueHost has actaully got
excellent good tech support).
