Linux OOTB assumes you have your machine
turned on 24/7. We are (supposed to be) doing away with that assumption.

It looks like Indy-6.0-0.8 includes anacron which is supposed to do away
with the need to be up 24/7. Our version appear to be configured to
gaurantee that all the daily jobs are dealt with even if the box gets
powered down.

What version of cron do you have installed ? Perhaps you might want to
grab anacron from the ftp site.
