Not information here. Maybe you should show us how you invoke the sendmail command from the script.

Everything is possible, if you don't know what you're talking about.

You can define PATH in your crontab or use the full to execute the script.
Please post the crontab file if you need more help.

Shalom,

cron has nothing, very little PATH, no environment, no TERM variables. You have to give all this to it for it to function normally.

It is not a command line interactive environment. It is like a new user, you need to tell it everything.
