    In my case, I just added ‘php /path_to_project_folder/bin/console uvdesk:refresh-mailbox your_mailbox_id’
    to crontab and everything works fine.
    So what is the purpose of function ‘execute’ overridding and the line ‘php /project_root_forlder_path uvdesk:refresh-mailbox’ in your crontab expression?

      Hello Vitaly,
      Nice day to you!!
      what is the purpose of function ‘execute’ overridding and the line ‘php /project_root_folder_path uvdesk:refresh-mailbox’ in your crontab expression?
