I had to change the permission on wiki.d/.notifylist  to   rw-rw-rw       (i.e read/write to everyone)

  I looks like it is a cache issue -- but we  do not know where that cache dir is or where it is picking up the notify emails fropm the past.
  I took out all notify entries and just added my self.  Everybody that was previously on the notify list also received an email.  so it it picking up past notify emails from somewhere.

I'm trying to recall what corrected this when it happened to me. I
think it might have been permissions on the wiki.d directory? Make
sure wiki.d and cache folders have permissions 777.

(I don't understand anything about this, so please reply to the group).

Hoping that helped,
