As I followup, I tried creating a bash wrapper for /usr/bin/mail containing the command above:


uname -a | /usr/bin/mail -s "[Test for condor]" myemail@xxxxxxxxxxx

exit 0

When I set MAIL=/path/to/my/script, I receive the expected "uname" email and no stray mail processes.  I expect what is happening is that on OSX, mail is never receiving an EOF from Condor, and is therefore hanging around expecting more input to the message body.  Is my assumption correct, I wonder?
