How to stop cron job emails

We are automation freaks here but getting tired of all the emails the cron jobs send out. Our perl scripts already send email if theres a problem. How do we get cron to stop sending emails?

I have commented out the root entry notification in /etc/aliases and the crontab config for root. and iworx. But I am still getting emails when cron runs.

Any ideas?


I think you have to pipe the cron job to /dev/null or something like that. I forget exactly, but I’ve seen it on these forums before.

EDIT: Found it

Thanks Justec, That indeed did the trick. I was hoping for a more central way of doing it for all cronjobs. but this should suffice for now.
