The OS handles the ooutput of the cronjob - not mrtg.

Maybe someone else who uses CentOS can chime in, but some things to try:

Like I mentioned before, set up a cron job for every 10 minutes to do a
LS /  > /dev/null 2>&1
Does that get e-mailed?

Are you SURE it's that cronjob? Set up that same job every 10 
minutes. Do you get an e-mail every 10 minutes?

Do you have other cron jobs that have output to /dev/null ? Do they 
get e-mailed also?

Everything I'm seeing on CentOS says
 > /dev/null 2>&1
