[rancid] RANCID Stop sending Notifications

Since I want all of the emails to come directly to me, I setup aliases for all of the groups to send to a single email address.

rancid-firewall-admin:    me at example.com
rancid-firewall:                me at example.com

then run the 'newaliases' command to make it active.

If you decide the email notifications are too much or not beneficial, then set the SENDMAIL to '/bin/true' in the etc/rancid.conf.
