Crontab works differently as manually execute the bash script. How can I fix it?


Hello guys.
I have two problems
Firstly, I make a script which send a report of current log files in every 10 min. When I manually execute the script, if there are no log file, it sends a mail with "no log file to report". However, when the script execute automatically with Crontab, it sends "Filename: *.log"
Secondly, when there is email address in report.txt, if the address is "something@gmail.com", when I check the mail after I run it, the mail address become "something%40gmail.com" like this. How can I fix two issues?
Thank you.

Here is my code:

<<Crontab>>
Code:
*/10 * * * * /home/team_24/Log_Report.bash
<<Log_Report.bash>>
Code:
#! /bin/bash

cd /home/team_24/logs                          

export DIR=/home/team_24/logs

if ls ${DIR}/*.log &>/dev/null

then

        for file in *.log

        do

                touch report.txt

                echo "Filename: $file" >> report.txt

                echo "" >> report.txt

                cat "$file" >> report.txt

                echo "" >> report.txt

                #remove log original log file

                rm -f $file

        done

        #report the log file and remove from log directory

        mail -s "Approved_Client_Report" something@gmail.com < /home/team_24/logs/report.txt

        rm /home/team_24/logs/report.txt

        exit 0

else

touch report.txt

echo "No logfile to report" >> report.txt

mail -s "Approved_Client_Report" something@gmail.com < /home/team_24/logs/report.txt

rm /home/team_24/logs/report.txt

exit 0

fi

The first problem is because of this
Code:
for file in *.log
Instead of
Code:
for file in ${DIR}/*.log
not sure about the second.
