You should see these lines in /etc/crontab:

You can set the MAILTO environment variable in /etc/crontab to mail to
an alternate address if needed.
Another way is to edit /etc/mail/aliases and forward mail
to root to your preferred account, e. g.
Note that "recompiling" sendmail's files is neccessary,
To be more precise, rebuilding the aliases file.
and sendmail needs to be restarted. It is explained at the top of
Makefile in the /etc/mail directory. It's quite easy. :-)
But 'newaliases' is easier yet. Is restarting sendmail after newaliases
really necessary? I change aliases so rarely I've never really noticed.
