We are trying to debug an issue with torque's notification system right

In order to determine how everything works, we need your help.

What system sends out the notification email to users?

Is it the Torque server system(the machine which runs pbs_server)
Is it the submission host?(the machine from which a user submits a job).

We are experiencing a problem where we have thousands of torque
notifications messages being sent and/or queued and it's creating a
flooding problem on our universities mail services. IE We are spamming our
own mail servers. :-)

Also, is there a way to turn off torque email notification all together
rather than turning off sendmail completely?
