I believe it is intentional that you do not get notified for post held 
for 'emergency moderation'. My understanding of the purpose of 
'emergency moderation' is for a short term emergency when a lot of 'bad' 
posts (like spam) are getting to the list. It is intended to be a short 
term patch till you can figure out a better method, then you will turn 
off the emergency moderation. In this case you will likely get flooded 
with moderation messages for posts held for the emergency moderation, 
and you are likely going to be able to check the web interface 
frequently while you are working on it.
