Greg, lxterminal has the 'feature' that it stays active if the command specified
with -e is invalid. Did you use the entire path to the program?  Are you
running it under cron as the same user as when you do so manually?
Try substituting xterm. If xterm -e 'path/to/pskmail_server'  quits immediately 
then you know there is a problem with your  'path/to/pskmail_server'.
You could then use 'lxterminal --working-directory=/tmp' without the -e in your 
cron file. 
That should give you a prompt in your lxterminal when cron runs, from where you 
can
then try running your pskmail_server and  hopefully see what is going wrong...
