Is MRTG sending to root or is cron sending to root?
If its MRTG check for something similar to
SetEnv[myrouter]: EMAIL="contact_email at someplace.net"
If however its your cron facility then
you need to locate where you are running mrtg from
(most likely /etc/crontab or check via "crontab -u root -e"
at anyrate you can add
MAILTO=username OR user.name at what.ever
and have the email get sent there, but unless you are checking that email
sill fill up some volume.
Personally I would check your root email ;) perhaps just setup a filter on
your email client to catch mrtg stuff.
At least for me personally I would never want to go withoout checking the
root email, as I have too many things email there like tripwire, and
(well actually the email goes to another user so I dont have to check the
root account but you get the picture)
