Default cron job

Output from nightly cronjobs is filling root's mailbox quickly,
and sending everything else to /var/spool/mqueue. These are just
status messages (stdout) from the cronjobs which we don't really need
mailed to root. Is there anyway to suppress mailings?

Yes. 'man 5 crontab' - Set
MAILTO=""
in your crontab, and you will suppress mails.
