I have several cronjob's set up on a server we have under the user root. I
need to specify specific email addresses results are sent to.

Using documentation from:

  man 5 crontab

I thought I could surround the jobs:

  @hourly /usr/local/bin/mysqladmin -u internalonly status
  30 8 * * * /usr/local/bin/mysql -u internalonly < /root/mysql.optimize
  */15 * * * * mysql -u internalonly < /root/delete_rad_usersonline
  0 */4 * * * mysql -u internalonly < /root/delete_rad_authlog_failed

It works for @hourly, but not for the other three.

I don't have a chance to look into it now, but it should definitely
work the way you have done it.  [I usually invoke sendmail directly on
the crontab line if I want mail output, so I haven't any experience to
draw on here.]

You might want to check whether the order of the schedule lines matters.

It is working. Checking the man page for cron:

  %man cron
  The cron utility then wakes up every minute, examining all stored
  crontabs, checking each command to see if it should be run in the
  current minute.

From this, I gathered they were read from top to bottom.
