OK.  So its: how can I get cron messages to be encrypted.

How about leaving the root mail to go to a local user (even root) and
then use exim's mail filter stuff to pass the mail to a script you write
that takes the mail, encrypts it, and forwards it to you wherever in the
world you are?

I don't know, but at least the question is clarified so you won't get
everyone telling you the same thing.
