I had spotted the mail and not email.

It was coming up with a null value.  I was only using the default line
though.  It looked like the array wasn't getting split correctly.. But I had
been bashing my head against the wall trying to debug that script for a
couple of days (my version now has about 20 odd lines of debuging code)

The notifier-confg line reads:

But by printing the $medium variable before the if statement the variable
had a null value.
