Sorry, am flailing in many directions at once here :-( I'd still check your process_message_queue cron. No email to anyone will go out until that runs.

while you seem to be referring to emails to patrons once a hold has
been pulled by staff for a patron.
Ultimately, of course, we'd like both to work!
