Note that you don't need to modify notify.php for this -- it can be
done in config.php with:

    $NotifyFrom = 'myemail at domain.com';
    $NotifyHeaders = '-f myemail at domain.com';

If the system thinks it has already sent email to <myemail at domain.com>, 
then by default it will wait three hours (the setting of $NotifySquelch)
before it sends another message to that address.

You might try temporarily lowering $NotifySquelch until notify is working,
then set it back to the default.
