I see /etc/crontab listed below:

sdo:/etc # cat crontab
SHELL=/bin/sh
PATH=/usr/bin:/usr/sbin:/sbin:/bin:/usr/lib/news/bin
MAILTO=root
#
# check scripts in cron.hourly, cron.daily, cron.weekly, and cron.monthly
#
-*/15 * * * * root test -x /usr/lib/cron/run-crons &&
/usr/lib/cron/run-crons >/dev/null 2>&1
59 * * * * root rm -f /var/spool/cron/lastrun/cron.hourly
14 0 * * * root rm -f /var/spool/cron/lastrun/cron.daily
29 0 * * 6 root rm -f /var/spool/cron/lastrun/cron.weekly
44 0 1 * * root rm -f /var/spool/cron/lastrun/cron.monthly



But I guess I'm gauging my exspectation on what I get from other *NIX
systems like my intranet server running Red Hat listed below:

You should have /etc/crontab at least; check it up and you will find how
the system cron tasks are set up by suse. Usually mail is only sent upon
failure, but can be adjusted otherwise.
