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.
