I suspect this might require a 3rd party application.

There is no way that I would want SMS notifications to my phone (which is almost what I'm looking for).

And if I could get emails just for particular users that would be even better.

You could try TweetyMail.com. From their FAQ:

tweetymail is a complete email interface to Twitter.

What does it do? – Ivo Flipse Jun 30 '10 at 20:47
It's pretty logical to assume that it does what the question asks. – Veeti Jun 30 '10 at 21:13
The answer is TweetyMail.com, which has a long list of features for sending email to twitter and receiving information back from twitter as an email. – MatthewMartin Jul 10 '10 at 13:59

You could use a RSS-to-email gateway like feedmyinbox on the RSS feed for the twitter timeline in question.
