First of all, sorry about my previous question about notification. I was completely wrong and my question must have sounded a bit silly.

The problem was that all my users where in group cvs. On watch notification, I expected them to receive mail on the email address I configured in 'users'. But they didn't.

The next step was that I looked for the place this email did go. In the mail of user 'cvs', I found the notification mail and I concluded that cvs sent the mail to the email address of user cvs instead of the email address of the cvs user (in users).

But I was wrong. User cvs did receive a mail, but it was an error mail. It said

As you can see, the mail went to user notification and user ', rdgon'. The second address is garbled, so the mail did never arrive at the expected address. It has to do with the group 'cvs' I put user rdgon in, because when I changed it to cvs-user1 (having primary group cvs), everything worked all right.

Does anybody know exactly what was happening? Is it a bug or yet another thing I overlooked in the documentation?
