Cron Mystery

Just a guess, but remember that cron expects a Bourne Shell Script, not 
a Perl script. I have several Bourne scripts that run under cron and send 
email. Remember that cron does not execute your ~/.profile, so you may 
need to update your path and other variables. You can easily solve the 
problem by writing a short Bourne Shell script as a wrapper around your 
Perl script.
