Mail.app daily outputs

Well, since nobody answered my first question about transferring preferences, I'm hesitant to try another, but here goes. A couple of weeks ago, my Mail started giving me these messages instead of the normal ones, and I can't for the life of me remember what I did. Anyone have a clue what might cause this?:

Code:
Subject: localhost daily run output

Removing scratch and junk files:

Backing up NetInfo data
Can't find address for localhost
nidump: incorrect format for domain localhost/local (Host not found)
usage: -t / can be a host name or IP address
usage: nidump [-r] [-T timeout] {directory | format} [-t] domain
known formats:
	aliases
	bootptab
	bootparams
	ethers
	exports
	fstab
	group
	hosts
	networks
	passwd
	printcap
	protocols
	resolv.conf
	rpc
	services
	mountmaps

Are you by any chance logging in as root via the GUI?
Those look like output from root's cronjobs...
They get mailed to root nightly if you have sendmail
running.

Yes, I'm root, but the jobs actually did something a few weeks ago, aside from telling me something was wonky. And I was root then, as well.

You don't ask easy questions do you. These are the possibilities:
Your daily script is not entirely correct anymore. Look for these lines in /etc/daily and see if they are still correct.
Code:
if [ -d /var/db/netinfo ]; then
        echo ""
        echo "Backing up NetInfo data"
        cd /var/db/netinfo
        for domain in *.nidb; do
            domain=$(basename $domain .nidb)
            nidump -r / -t localhost/$domain > $bak/$domain.nidump;
        done
fi
There is something wrong with your network setup. Remember even if you do not have a network, there is still a setup for it.

That's all i can say about it from here.
