[Koha] Koha 16.05 - Manually send overdue notices from command-line?

Hi all,

Koha 16.05
Ubuntu 14.04 LTS
Package install

After one properly sets up overdue notices (i.e., correct HTML markup in ODUE notice, triggers set, enhanced messaging enabled, MTA installed, patron categories set to receive overdue notices, etc.), can you manually compile and push out overdue notices from the command-line? I've successfully tested the Advanced Notice, Password Reset, Hold Placed, Check-out and Check-in notices this way; however, I can't seem to push out overdue notices no matter what I do. (Nor for that matter do I receive overdue notices at all despite crons being set, etc.).

Command-line Method:

# export PERL5LIB=/usr/share/koha/lib
# export KOHA_CONF=/etc/koha/sites/library/koha-conf.xml

I'm just wondering if a Koha overdue setting is preventing the manual method from succeeding. Or, if it's more likely something else that's preventing OD notices from being pushed out.

Thanks all!
