Daemons don't mail to root

http://www.linuxforums.org – In Fedora and FreeBSD, I can receive mail from daemons. And if my scripts scheduled in crontab go wrong, the error message is mailed to root. But in Ubuntu 9.04, the command `mail -u root` gets "No mail for root", and the folders /var/mail and /var/spool/mail are both empty. Is it that I have to install some packages , or I have to enable something? Or Ubuntu just does these in some other ways? Thank you. (HowTos)
