I don't have enough experience with different varieties of cron to be sure,
but I expect that most send mail to the user. My rundig script mails any
output to stdout and stderr to the user owning the crontab (i.e. root). If
this doesn't seem to be working, a pipe to mail will certainly do the trick.
