pbs_server has a few places where it forces (bypasses the -m option) an
email to be sent when a significant error occurs.  'grep -r MAIL_FORCE
.' in the source tarball and you can see where that happens.  There's
always an error message being logged nearby telling you what is
happening.  It is pretty much just for job launch and data staging
errors.  Stuff that shouldn't generally be happening.

Which email are they complaining about?
