Cron not displaying jobs

Hi everyone! I'm running fedora 15, cron is running and I'm trying to execute a simple date command in a crontab that should run every minute but unfortunately it doesn't.

This is the output from /var/log/cron:

Jun 27 22:33:01 sonda /USR/SBIN/CROND[2834]: (sonda) CMD (date)

checking the user email i got this:

From sonda@sonda.localdomain Wed Jun 27 22:33:02 2012

Now the question is: why cron displays the date in a mail and not using a terminal???
