Re: Email subscription
foodude: Yes, agreed the ‘spam factor’ can be an issue for large lists. Though in principle, this isn’t a reason for a plugin not to be developed, esp. for smaller communities who rely on email. Email notification needs to be wisely used as you indicate.
thomasw98: as an intermim measure, I was thinking about feedblitz (despite its yukky images with the free version). Though I expect it will generate a list of messages, so not differentiating or sectioning new posts and comments to earlier posts in the digest email sent out?
