    ok, create yourself a script like this:

    Code:
    /usr/local/mysql/bin/mysqldump -u USERNAME --password=DB_PASSWORD DATABASENAME > /a/path/to/your/home/directory/databasebackup.sql 
    
    /usr/bin/mutt -s "Database backup" < /a/path/to/your/home/directory/databasebackup.sql
    Save that script somewhere on the system, and make it executable. Then setup the cron job via your system control panel. - what you need to really change here is the "command" box, put the full path&filename of the script above.

    That should then be job done.
