[Mediawiki-l] Emailing Distro List

How could I use the variable below, but only have it send the emails for one particular page ?
Say a page called "Team Meetings" ?  What would I add to LocalSettings.php in that case ?

Thanks SO much,

Yes, set up a user account with their email address set to the distribution list, say "Notify" then use

$wgUsersNotifiedOnAllChanges = array( 'Notify' );

I don't see why you would have to log in as the user, as long as you use $wgUsersNotifiedOnAllChanges and not watchlists.
