The beginning is my script, the one above your post is someone else's, so.
On the contrary, when I add someone to my notify list and check it, I get $true.
But using the same settings, when I try the regular join instead of the edit box (with that command), I get the same results. Again, I want it to give the notice if they're NOT in my Notify list, which doesn't work. Yet I still get $true.
Anyone else have some ideas? This seems to be a hard case.
