Default need to log the execution of script

I would do it like this:


#### logging this script into 2 log files
SHELL_LOG="`basename $0`.log"
# Logs stderr and stdout to separate files.
exec 2> >(tee "$SHELL_LOG.err")
exec > >(tee "$SHELL_LOG")

echo "Checking if exist internet connection"
ping -c 3
if [ $? -eq 0 ]; then
echo "Starting to send & download email"
echo "Flushing mail queue"
/usr/sbin/postqueue -c /etc/postfix -f
echo "Starting fetchmail"
/usr/bin/fetchmail -v -f /etc/fetchmailrc -L /var/log/fetchmail.log
echo "Checking mail queue and fetchmail process"
while ! postqueue -p | grep -q empty && ps -C fetchmail > /dev/null; do
echo "There is still mail in queue or fetchmail is still working"
sleep 1
echo "Terminating the connection"
killall wvdial
echo "Internet connection not found"
