See the documentation in cron/disabled for options that control to whom
notifications are sent. The default crontab command sends notices only
to members disabled by bounce.

Password reminders are sent to "disabled by user" members unless they
are also turned off by the user, but they come from the site list so
even if they bounce they won't be auto-unsubscribed except maybe from
the site list.
