Bear in mind that cron jobs do not run with all the environment that an interactive command would - for instance, when you call "python", that's being looked up to a full file path based on the environment variable $PATH.

A "%" character in the command, unless escaped with a backslash (\), will be changed into newline characters, and all data after the first % will be sent to the command as standard input.

I have tried checking if the cronjob is running using pgrep cron and that gives process id 3033. You should specify the path in full to avoid that dependency.

The shell scrip is calls python file and is used to send email. A couple of extra points that should probably be included here: 1) when testing your command, test as the user whose crontab you are editing, which might not be your login or root; 2) as I mentioned above, it's best not to rely on environment variables like The entire command portion of the line, up to a newline or a "%" character, will be executed by /bin/sh or by the shell specified in the SHELL variable of the cronfile.

Note that to perform this function you will need to have root access on your VPS or dedicated server.

I do not want to have to login via ssh to find out what happened with my cron job.
