Depending on how you call it, you can either tell cron to send mail to
somebody else than the calling user (mine supports MAILTO=), or if that
doesn't help, you can redirect mail to news within qmail:

try (as root):

echo '&otheruser' >~alias/.qmail-news

Replace otheruser with the user name (login) or mail address that you
want to receive news-mail. /var/qmail/doc/INSTALL.alias and the
dot-qmail man page for details.

I hope I got that right, I've replaced all my qmail installations with
Postfix, so the above suggestion is untested.
