Mail Report not sending on schedule

  • Hi all,

    I have configured mail report to send me daily emails. But it is not working.

    I have pfsense 2.2.4 on this machine. I also have 3 other routers running the same version and have almost similar report settings, and they work, just the one in question does not.

    I double checked the SMTP settings, and I can receive a test email. I am also able to send a test email from Mail Reports and receive it promptly.

    I also checked the crontab settings and there it is, it should work, as far as I can tell.

    0	1	*	*	*	root	/usr/local/bin/mail_reports_generate.php 0 &
    0	1	*	*	*	root	/usr/local/bin/mail_reports_generate.php 1 &
    0	1	*	*	*	root	/usr/local/bin/mail_reports_generate.php 2 &

    When I checked the system logs, there is nothing in there, that suggests that mail reports tried to send and failed. Nothing, not a single line form mail reports.

    crontab also has an entry for dyndns and that is working properly, so cron is fine.

    Where else can I check, any ideas?

    See attached picture for mail reports settings that I use.


  • Does anybody have an idea? Any thoughts?

    Where else can I check "stuff"?

    So run the cron commands manually in console (without the trailing &) and see what happens?
