    What's exactly mean this row on crontab ?

    /usr/bin/test -x /usr/local/cpanel/bin/tail-check && /usr/local/cpanel/bin/tail-check

    --

    After more than 1 year that this is on crontab I receive today an email alert from root@myserver with text:

    Notification => dom@mysite.com via EMAIL [level => 1]

    ??

    Thanks

    Go on, have a guess
    To find out what test is:

    man test

    So, that line tests whether /usr/local/cpanel/bin/tail-check exists and is executable. If it is, then it runs /usr/local/cpanel/bin/tail-check
