Perhaps you could be a little more specific about what you do want to send in the email.

Maybe you want something like:
echo "failure" | mailx -s "webshell instance has been started noiw"

mailx -s "webshell instance has been started noiw" < /dev/null

Hello Ramkumar15,

check /var/log/maillog or /var/log/messages if you're on *nixOr, on *nix, look in /etc/syslog.conf to see where else those log messages might be getting sent to, hope this may be helpful to you.
