THE ERROR I GET IN /var/spool/mail/root is that
/bin/sh: root: command not found.
the error is caused because the way you wrote it you are telling cron you want to run the command "root" - which isn't a command... just put the command starting with the echo and you should be fine, since this is root's crontab, the commands wil run as root...
