I have [email protected] delivered to my mailbox (after procmailing
out the regular automated stuff).  We also have several people that
check the [email protected] mailbox several times a day.  Last time I
even checked our mail log for anything that might have been misdirected
or filtered out.  No notification at all, multiple times now.
