Just a few thoughts...
You may need to give the full path to the executable e.g. beginning with /usr/bin/....
You may run this as user not as root, so you need to make sure that your user has access to the executable or su the command.
What happens if you run this command manually over ssh?

I believe that the cronjob is running under the user account, not root...

How did you setup the job?
If you need to run it under root, you should do so by manually enter it after issuing the following comand:
Code
crontab -e
Be sure that you are root before using this.
This opens your standard editor. Just save the file as usual after entering the cronjob.

Hi adyoi,

The cron jobs set from Cron Job page of Webuzo panel are executed at user level. Hence you are getting the error as:
/bin/sh: exim: command not found
/bin/sh: exiqgrep: command not found
xargs: exim: No such file or directory

In order to execute as root you need to add the cron job in crontab -e

Let us know if you face any issues further.

Hi,

You need to SSH your server as root and then execute:
crontab -e

After the file opens, enter the cron job you want to execute as root.

Let us know if you have any further queries.
