Is there an extension or a method to email to a distribution list when an important

Yes, set up a user account with their email address set to the
distribution list, say "Notify" then use
$wgUsersNotifiedOnAllChanges = array( 'Notify' );
You could have a dummy user with the distribution
list as address, but
then you would need to login as that user to view the page for each
I don't see why you would have to log in as the user, as long as you
use $wgUsersNotifiedOnAllChanges and not watchlists.

Well, he asked to email "when an important mediawiki page is changed",
so I assumed that not all his mediawiki pages were "important". :)
