I would say check the log file for the configuration file being used.
Then check that whatever is producing the emails (from cron I assume)
is using the same config file. You may want to look at the
COPY_LOG_ON_ERROR option to see if you can capture what is going on.
To be honest it sounds like you may have 2 instances of rkhunter
running - one from cron which gives errors, one from the command-line
which does not.
