Some ideas for debugging :
* Check your e-mail address for typos.
* Try with another notify=address at otherdomain.fr .
* Check the $NotifyFrom address - on some hosting providers you need to have 
an address that exists and matches the current domain name.
* Try with shorter squelch/delay just for testing purposes -- also, the wiki 
needs to be accessed by a visitor after the squelch for the mails to be sent.
* Check your spam folders, in case notify messages land there.

When you have in config.php $EnableNotify=1; PmWiki will include the file 
scripts/notify.php which actually does the job -- mail() is called there...
