Ok, I interpreted your description as to get "error" messages. Use
following in your crontab behind the script command:

> /dev/null 2>&1

That should suppress the verbose cron activity mailing. Or use MAILTO=""
at top of your user crontab. But that will suppress any mail normally
caused by cronjob of that tab.
