You should see these lines in /etc/crontab:

# Perform daily/weekly/monthly maintenance.
1       3       *       *       *       root    periodic daily
15      4       *       *       6       root    periodic weekly
30      5       1       *       *       root    periodic monthly

You can set the MAILTO environment variable in /etc/crontab to mail to
an alternate address if needed.

You should, unless you have a modified /etc/periodic.conf

I'm not sure about tripwire, but it should either be handled by
rc.conf or periodic.conf.
