If you have a cm account (or even a dummy account that can be controlled by cm 
cm does checkins) have that account do a 
cvs watch add -a commit
at the head of your tree and then change your 'notify' file to
ALL postie -to:ALL_MY_PROJECT -msg:"Parameters, which I ask you"

where ALL_MY_PROJECT is an alias on your mail host to everyone in your group, 
will force it out to everyone.  My preference though has always been to leave 
-to: as -to:%s and request that everyone on the project run cvs watch add -a
commit in the directories they may be changing, that way if it is a big project
they are not getting hundreds of emails a day for directories that may/do not
affect them.
