If you want me to analyze what is happening in your installation you
must do the following:

1) Collect the following files into a zip archive and email it to me
(do not send it to the cvsnt list, it has nothing to do with
CVSMailer):
- CVSMailer.ini
- CVSROOT/loginfo
- CVSROOT/taginfo
- CVSROOT/notify
- CVSROOT/users
- CVSROOT/loginfousers
- CVSROOT/checkoutlist
- ML<date>.log and MS<date>.log from a date when the problems show up.

2) Describe your system setup:
- Directory structure of the CVS repository (file/folder locations)
- Version of the CVS *server* (client has no influence here)
- If possible, export the following registry key and put the reg file
into the zipfile mentioned above after changing the extension from
.reg to .txt (to get past some email virus checkers).
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\CVS\Pserver

>From a brief look at your email there are a few things that stand out,
one of them is the fact that the users file is not accessible and the
other is the version info as stated below:

This does not look like a CVSNT *server* at all to me and the
CVSMailer application was explicitly developed *only* for CVSNT! It
uses the registry data that CVSNT has written and if these are not
present then CVSMailer will likely not work.
Are you using a GNU CVS server???
The fact that you have a CVSNT *client* does not help at all,
CVSMailer is a *server* side utility only.
