There are 2 ways:

1) su - root -c "crontab -e"
    put in the crontab:
MAILTO=""
/home/ffsearch/online_check.pl > /dev/null

If ffsearch is a user and you script has not to be run as root, then
create the cronjob for the user with something like:
su - ffsearch -c "crontab -e"
For solution 1) delete the entry in /etc/crontab.

2) Modify the entry in /etc/crontab to be:
/home/ffsearch/online_check.pl > /dev/null 2>1&

I prefer to not put everything in /etc/crontab but to use user crontab
files which are stored in /var/spool/cron/. Or placing jobs with the
proper syntax in /etc/cron.d/.
