Enabling email notifications

S h i v
Hi All,

I have a mediawiki installation (1.5.8) on which I wanted to enable email
notification. A user should get a notification mail whenever any of the
pages in his watchlist  changes. How do you I do this?

The Enotif site (http://www.wikipage.org/wikinaut/index.php/Enotif) says
that most of the features of Enotif are available in mediawiki (>1.5.6) and
recommeds use of mediawiki itself.

But the mediawiki (preferences page for sysop) does not provide the required
options. I found the webpages and the documentation on Enotif to be
confusing.

Please let me know incase any of you know of the same.

thanks and best regards
Shiv

Provided the site configuration is set up to allow it
(http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Help:Configuration_settings#Email_settings
et al.), users can opt into email notification for changes to pages on
their watchlists via their user preferences.
