I had a similar problem, and I found that after I downloaded the
latest version
of sendmail it seemed to work.  Are you able to send mail from the
prompt? ie mail address@hidden  I found until I could do that,
the notify mails werent being
sent out.  I may be wrong in saying this, but I found that
problem to be with the configuration of sendmail and not CVS. 

Hope this helps.
