I think what you are asking to related to the "MAILTO" variable.
If you set MAILTO='' in your crontab for root the cron stuff
will not be sent. 
An exerpt from the cron man page:

       When executing commands, any  out­
       put  is mailed to the owner of the crontab (or to the user
       named in the MAILTO environment variable in  the  crontab,
       if such exists).
