Hi Crawford, I noticed a small bug when the mailnotify script is called when no changes have occurred on a web. The last notification time was being reset back to 0, and then the next round in the cron would resend all the same notifications again. Here is a patch to fix the problem:

--- Mailer.pm   2007-04-24 10:13:59.000000000 -0700
+++ Mailer.pm   2007-05-03 15:01:28.000000000 -0700

     $report .= _sendNewsletterMails( $twiki, $web, \%allSet);

-    if( open(F, ">$notmeta" )) {
-        print F $timeOfLastChange;
-        close(F);
+    if($timeOfLastChange != 0)
+    {
+        if( open(F, ">$notmeta" )) {
+            print F $timeOfLastChange;
+            close(F);
+        }

     return $report;
