Your are right! The to_address gets set by the process_message_queue.
After changing AutoEmailPrimaryAddress to "first valid" everyone else got the overdue notice.
Just for the book I have entered (and made overdue) for myself the system did not create a overdue record to be sent.
Now I have to check why not.
Thanks a lot for your help.

Can you check to see if messages are going out now? At the least, if you
see "sent" in a patron's message history, instead of "failed", you'll know
this is working (whether the email reaches the patron, there is no way to
