This is one way of doing it:

If you want to send email notifications on all commits, try putting
something like this in the loginfo file in the CVSROOT directory of the

ALL mail -s %s address@hidden

The leftmost text (ALL) matches the directories in the repository. An
'ALL' rule matches every directory, a 'DEFAULT' rule matches anything
that doesn't otherwise have a match, and any other rule is a regular
expression which matches against the repository directories.
The expression ^example, for instance, would match anything where
'example' started the line.

The rest of the line is the mail command. It's just using the shell
command 'mail' - you may, for security's sake, want to make it
/usr/bin/mail or whatever the address of your mail program is.

The %s is a variable that the loginfo file parses - see the 'loginfo'
node of info cvs, or the relevant part of the Cederqvist manual. There
are three loginfo-specific variables. %v and %V are the new and old
version numbers, and %s is the filename.

address@hidden can be replaced with any appropriate mailing list,
or you can use CVS administrative file variables, or the contents of a
shell script.
